Nanomaterials exhibit unique properties that could challenge traditional perceptions about particle behavior and industrial hygiene, and more research is ongoing. At this time, it appears that traditional prudent approaches to avoid exposures (engineering controls, work practice controls, personal protective equipment) would also work for nanomaterials.

The EHS website has further resources available regarding Nanotechnology Safety. Please contact EHS if you have any questions, or if you want to request an evaluation of your work conditions.
