Approaches to safe nanotechnology.

Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2009-126c, 2009 May; :CD-ROM
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? This CD-ROM contains a compilation of five NIOSH nanotechnology publications: Approaches to Safe Nanotechnology: Managing the Health and Safety Concerns Associated with Engineered Nanomaterials DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2009-125 <a href=""target="_blank"></a>; NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 60: Interim Guidance for Medical Screening and Hazard Surveillance for Workers Potentially Exposed to Engineered Nanoparticles DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2009-116 <a href=""target="_blank"></a>; The Nanotechnology Field Research Team Update DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2008-120 <a href=""target="_blank"></a>; NIOSH Fact Sheet: The Nanotechnology Field Research Effort DHHS(NIOSH) Publication No. 2008-121 <a href=""target="_blank"></a>; Safe Nanotechnology in the Workplace DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2008-112 <a href=""target="_blank"></a>.
