Toxic or hazardous chemicals are substances capable of causing injury, illness, or death by chemical means.

TURI offers a lot of support - trainings, laboratory services, grants, library and research - to help you reduce toxic chemical use.

If you are a member of the public or researcher looking to see what toxic chemicals are being used in your area, visit the Chemicals Used in Massachusetts section to link to a wealth of data and analysis. The Toxics Use Reduction Act requires that certain Massachusetts companies report the amount of toxics used and byproducts generated. This information is available to the public.
