Title:

Nanomaterials Safety And Health: Strategies For Engineering Out Hazards During Production And Downstream Use

SKU:WT-1001550
Format: Webinar
Description:

If your organization uses or makes products that contain nanomaterials, taking a second look how exposure could affect employees and consumers can help you protect them from serious injury or illness.

The effects nanomaterials could have on humans and the environment are up for debate. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has requested that companies study and evaluate consumer products that use them.

Additionally, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is researching to identify how industrial workers might be exposed to nanomaterials. In Europe, standards are much stricter—the onus is on companies to prove that products containing nanomaterials are safe before they can be sold to consumers.

Learn the potential risks of nanomaterial exposure and cost-effective strategies for addressing them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Why EHS professionals are uncertain about nanomaterial safety
  • What nanomaterial safety regulations have been initiated or proposed
  • How to identify and assess nanomaterial hazards in the workplace
  • What nanomaterial-related issues, like product safety, to watch out for
  • How to manage risk associated with manufacturing nanomaterials
  • Approaches to developing product warnings and similar content
  • Strategies for informing consumers and employees about nanomaterial hazards
  • Best practices for safe nanomaterials manufacturing, use, and disposal
  • Where to find effective third-party resources to help you develop a nanomaterials EHS program
Attend this webinar to understand the potential risks of nanomaterials in your workplace and cost-effective strategies for addressing them.
