Nanotechnology: Updates and Challenges for the Future, Part 1
The number of new engineered nanomaterials that are more active, efficient, and versatile in their commercial applications continues to rise steadily. However, there are still many questions regarding potential human health implications making the role of the IH challenging. This session will provide an update on the latest thinking in two topics: 1) Nanotechnology: Where is it Today and What is the role of the Industrial Hygienist? and 2) State of the Science: Nanotoxicology of Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs). Nanotechnology Updates: Focus on Nanoparticles
Control Banding for Engineered Nanomaterials Case Studies
This presentation highlights the use of risk banding models in assessing and managing workplace EHS risks for nanotechnology applications. Three control banding models for engineered nanomaterials were reviewed and used to evaluate exposure scenarios from manufacturing and research. This presentation summarizes the results for each model. The model criteria, practical applications, limitations, and differences in output will be outlined. NIOSH 7402 and the Tsai Diffusion Sampler Methods for Carbon Nanotubes
This session will present a comparison of the NIOSH 7402 method and the Tsai Diffusion Sampler method for collecting and analyzing carbon nanotubes. Emissions from Printed Paper and Cell Toxicity Test with Paper Particles
The aim of this research was to investigate and characterize airborne particles released from printing and shredding paper. The study was designed to evaluate the exposure using real time instruments and Tsai diffusion samplers. To evaluate the particle concentration and the size distribution of printer emission, printer emitted particles (PEPs) were determined in notable size formed with metal granules and graphite. Furthermore, potential exposure risks to paper particles were also evaluated via cell toxicity test using human lung cells (BES2B and HBE1). Nanotechnology: Updates and Challenges for the Future, Part 2
The number of new engineered nanomaterials that are more active, efficient, and versatile in their commercial applications continues to rise steadily. However, there are still many questions regarding potential human health implications making the IH role challenging. This session will provide an update in: 1) Exposure assessment: current state of sampling techniques, and 2) Risk management and control of occupational exposures to nanoparticles. Current understanding of the hazards, risks and potential legal responsibilities that need to be managed will be discussed. Full session descriptions.
