EU publishes nanomaterial guidance for employers and workers

(Nanowerk News) This Guidance document offers an overview of the issues surrounding the safe use of manufactured nanomaterials in the workplace, sets out the broad outlines of preventive action and provides a practical tool for complying with specific aspects of ensuring workers’ safety, such as risk assessment and risk management.
This may be of particular value to those who may not have an in-depth technical understanding of the issues involved, and may assist in ensuring compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) legislation when dealing with manufactured nanomaterials.
