Nanotechnology and Industrial Safety

The unique properties of nanostructures and nanomaterials – such as a large surface area, high activity, and small size, there is some concern about the potential for harmful adverse effects of used nanomaterials on health or the environment. Workers working in nanotechnology-related industries have the potential to be exposed to uniquely engineered materials with novel sizes, shapes, and physical and chemical properties. Occupational health risks associated with manufacturing and using nanomaterials are not yet clearly understood. The extremely small size of nanomaterials is much more readily taken up by the human body than larger sized particles. Thus it is necessary to develop the specialized technique to testing and monitoring their effects of nanomaterials on human health and on the environment.
