Approaches to Safe Nanotechnology: Managing the Health and Safety Concerns Associated with Engineered Nanomaterials

May 2009
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2010-112c
cover of 2010-112c

NIOSH is the leading federal agency conducting research and providing guidance on the occupational safety and health implications and applications of nanotechnology. This research focuses NIOSH’s scientific expertise, and its efforts, on answering the questions that are essential to understanding these implications and applications:

  • How might workers be exposed to nano-sized particles in the manufacturing or industrial use of nanomaterials?
  • How do nanoparticles interact with the body’s systems?
  • What effects might nanoparticles have on the body’s systems?
