Technical Report: Occupational Exposure Sampling for Engineered Nanomaterials
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2022-153
NIOSH developed guidance for workplace sampling for three engineered nanomaterials: carbon nanotubes and nanofibers, silver, and titanium dioxide, each of which have an elemental mass-based NIOSH Recommended Exposure Limit (REL). In addition, NIOSH developed a practical approach to exposure sampling for other engineered nanomaterials that do not have exposure limits. Occupational health and safety professionals have expressed a need for one document that explains all of the available nanomaterial sampling techniques, and this document provides a summary of the different sampling techniques.
