Hello whirlers.

I am currently a technical writer / document manager at an EHS
department of a pharma company. I am harmonizing procedures, web guidance,
manuals, etc. for a world-wide audience (R&D scientists primarily, EHS
staff and regulators secondarily).

I cannot find which style guide is standard or even a preference for EHS
writers (I searched in the archives but didn't find what I was looking for).
I have CMoS, APA, and MLA on my desk. If you are in an EHS (or other OSHA-
or EPA-regulated, or even engineering) field, what style guide(s) do you
use? Do you know of an industry standard style guide?

Thanks for your comments and thoughts.
