  • Description:
    "The past decade has seen intense interest in developing technologies based on the unique behavior of nanometer-scale (nanoscale) structures, devices, and systems which has lead to the rapidly expanding and highly diverse field of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is somewhat loosely defined, although in general terms it covers engineered structures, devices, and systems that have a length scale between 1 and 100 nanometers. At these length scales, materials begin to exhibit unique properties that affect physical, chemical, and biological behavior. Researching, developing, and utilizing these properties is at the heart of new technology. One of the best channels to achieve the goal of keeping workers safe from potential harm of this new technology is by collaborating on research in the field of nanotechnology. A recent symposium held at the XVIII World Congress on Safety and Health at Work, "Approaches to Safe Nanotechnology: A Global Perspective", brought seven international scientists together to discuss the topic. The lessons learned and the importance of global collaboration on nanotechnology safety and health research were discussed." - NIOSHTIC-2
  • Content Notes:
    co-chairpersons: Max R. Lum, Markus Berges.
