Description:

Nanotechnology has quickly moved from an innovative idea to a technology that is created, produced, and used in the workplace. The state of the science is constantly evolving thus creating a myriad of questions on the "how-to" of worker health and safety. This webinar will discuss the uncertainties associated with the hazards and potential risks of working with engineered nanoparticles; describe ways to help manage exposure to engineered nanoparticles; and illustrate how occupational health and safety controls, both engineering and administrative, can be implemented to better manage worker health and safety. Additionally, this webinar will present case studies that will highlight how select organizations that use engineered nanoparticles in production facilities (metal oxide and metal alloy), as well as research laboratories, are addressing the safety and health issues behind this new technology. This webinar will focus on several points such as:

  • Known health effects data and their implications for risk characterization and risk management
  • Hazard identification and exposure assessment
  • Evaluating and characterizing risk
  • Procedural approaches for completing an evaluation
  • Conducting a real-time assessment: qualitative and quantitative tools
  • Types of controls, PPE, and how to verify effectiveness
  • Employee communication
  • Communicating information to management

After participating in this webinar, attendees will be better able to understand:

  • The potential hazards and associated risks of engineered nanoparticles
  • The current state of knowledge in terms of health data in the occupational setting
  • How to develop a procedural approach for characterizing risk in a workplace utilizing engineered nanoparticles
  • How to evaluate and employ effective PPE and control practices
  • Methods for communication in workplaces utilizing engineered nanoparticles
  • How select companies are utilizing control methods and PPE, and controlling risk when dealing with engineered nanoparticles

System Requirements:

  • Windows NT, 2000, or XP
  • Intel x86 (Pentium 400MHZ +) or compatible processor
  • 128 MB or greater RAM
  • Sound Card
