Abstract
Industrial hygienists and other health protection professionals face significant challenges in understanding and controlling a myriad of potential factors that may influence the toxicity, exposure, and ultimately the health risks of producing, handling, and using engineered nanomaterials. As an early step to foster information exchange and understanding nanoparticles and their properties, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has created an Internet- based Nanoparticle Information Library (NIL). The NIL supports the NIOSH mission to identify and prevent potential adverse effects from nanoparticles by communicating information about health and safety issues that may be associated with nanoparticle manufacturing, handling, or exposure.
