A wide range of materials are used in ceramics and they present a many hazards. These hazards are often not well understood by engineers and technicians (they focus their efforts on using the materials to get results). Hazard information that is available is often not well communicated to production staff. However this knowledge base revolves around materials and puts hazard information a click away. In addition, since this database is connected to calculation software, users of that software always find materials in context of their mineralogy, chemistry and hazards.
