UK Releases Report on Workplace Exposure and Controls During Nanomaterial Manufacturing

This week, the United Kingdom's Health and Safety Laboratory, a division of the Health and Safety Executive,  issued a report assessing how employees encounter airborne nanomaterials during their manufacture, handling and use, as well as the steps companies are taking to ensure safe exposure rates. The study was limited in scope, assessing only four UK-based companies, and cautions against overgeneralising any results.

The full assessment, first reported by the Nano and Other Emerging Chemical Technologies Blog, can be found on the UK Health and Safety Executive website.
