AIHA to host nanotechnology web seminar

(Nanowerk News) The American Industrial Hygiene Association will host an intermediate TeleWeb Virtual Seminar, titled "Nanotechnology Update for IHs: Toxicology and Exposure Assessment Issues", on Jan. 31, 2008, from 24:30 p.m. EST.
Featured speakers include Mark D. Hoover, Ph.D., CHP, CIH, senior scientist, NIOSH; Bruce J. Kelman, Ph.D., DABT, president and principal, Veritox Inc.; Vince Castranova, Ph.D., branch chief, NIOSH; and Charles L. Geraci, Ph.D., CIH, document development branch chief, NIOSH.
Presentations will discuss the following topics:
  • Nanotoxicology issues for assessing and managing occupational exposure risks for nanoparticles in the workplace
  • Toxicology of nanoparticles for industrial hygienists
  • Nanotoxicology insights from the NIOSH Research Program
  • Managing exposure risks for nanomaterials using the current state of knowledge
  • AIHA said attendees will be taught how to describe how nanotoxicology issues fit into an overall risk assessment and risk management framework for nanotechnology, understand the toxicological properties of nanoparticles of concern for the health and safety of workers and consumers, and understand and apply approaches for evaluating and managing risks for handling nanomaterials in the presence of uncertainty.
    Participants need Internet access and a telephone, or just a phone, to be part of these live educational events. To register for the event, please call toll free at 1-800-651-7916, or register online at
