Please email your expression of interest
Nanotechnology has a wide range of consumer applications from
pharmaceuticals and electronics to cosmetics and novel
fabrics. One of the prerequisites for the safe development of
nanomaterials is to ensure the safety of workers using, handling or
In response to this HSL is running a one day training course on
a practical approach to nanotechnology health and safety.
This course will help delegates to gain an understanding of the
techniques and methods available to identify and control exposure
to airborne nanomaterials.
To gain an understanding of the techniques and methods available
to identify and control exposure to airborne nanomaterials.
The focus of this course will be on a "Practical approach to
nanotechnology health and safety". The course will provide
delegates with an understanding of:
- What is known about the health risks for exposure to
- What exposure scenarios might be expected?
- What measurement techniques and strategies to measure airborne
nanomaterials can be used in the workplace?
- What types of engineering controls are available; how to select
and maintain these controls.
- Correct selection and use of Respiratory Protective Equipment
(RPE) and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
- Managing the disposal of nanomaterials.
