Nano 101


Today, there are over 1,000 nanomaterial-containing products being industrially manufactured with still more under development by academic researchers and small start-up companies. Nanomaterials have physical and chemical properties that are often different from their parent material, making them desirable for certain product applications. While the novelty and applications of engineered nanomaterials are well-understood, the understanding of their inherent toxicities and potential workplace and environmental impact is in its infancy.

Watch this webinar to learn about:

  • Basic methods and processes utilized to produce engineered nanomaterials
  • Exposure-causing events during discovery, development, manufacturing, handling and processing, and hazardous waste management
  • Workplace safety and environmental considerations
  • Risk assessments and exposure monitoring
  • Engineering controls and best practices
