​This set of Public Health Information Papers (PHIPs) describe a toxidrome-based approach to developing exposure guidelines for assessing the risk of chronic health effects following acute exposures to toxic industrial chemicals (TICs).  The approach relies on subject matter expert input to bridge the key data gaps.  Work in this area by APHC is on-going and completed documents will be posted here as they are published.
