EU-OSHA presents the key facts on manufactured nanomaterials in the workplace to tie with its campaign “Healthy Workplaces – Manage Dangerous Substances” in the form of infosheets, now available in 17 languages.
What are manufactured nanomaterials? What action is required by occupational safety and health legislation? What types of exposure? What risk assessment? What measures can be taken to manage these risks? The infosheet answers these questions, providing information and advice on managing the risks posed by this fast developing technology, used in many fields and may to have a range of toxic effects.
