Nanos and Occupational Health

By AVICENN Team – Last Modified June 2022

Many employees are likely to be exposed to nanoparticles and manufactured nanomaterials, and this in practically all sectors.

The workplaces concerned can be research and development laboratories, start-ups resulting from this research, large companies or a whole series of small and medium-sized companies, up to craftsmen and distributors, who know a flow of raw materials, semi-finished products and finished products.

This file explores various issues related to the exposure of workers to nanos, the legal framework for nanos in the workplace and avenues for improvement for better risk assessment and worker protection.
