Abstract
ISO/TR 12885:2008 describes health and safety practices in occupational settings relevant to nanotechnologies. ISO/TR 12885:2008 focuses on the occupational manufacture and use of engineered nanomaterials. It does not address health and safety issues or practices associated with nanomaterials generated by natural processes, hot processes and other standard operations which unintentionally generate nanomaterials, or potential consumer exposures or uses, though some of the information in ISO/TR 12885:2008 might be relevant to those areas. Use of the information in ISO/TR 12885:2008 could help companies, researchers, workers and other people to prevent adverse health and safety consequences during the production, handling, use and disposal of manufactured nanomaterials. This advice is broadly applicable across a range of nanomaterials and applications.
