The list includes trichloroethylene (TCE), 1-bromopropane (1-BP), arsenic and inorganic arsenic containing compounds, disulfoton, heptachlor, 2-hydroxypropyl acrylate (HPA), dimethyl sulfate (DMS), tetraethyl lead (TEL), and tetramethyl lead (TML). For more information, see skin notation profiles on the NIOSH website.

The 9 chemicals, and links to their skin notation profiles are listed below:

What are skin notation profiles?

Skin notation profiles are technical documents, created by NIOSH, to provide warnings about the direct, systemic, and sensitizing effects of chemical exposures to the skin. These profiles also include summaries of epidemiological, toxicological, and all other relevant data used to help determine the hazards associated with skin exposure, as well as the rationale behind the chemical’s hazard-specific skin notation assignment.
