The innovative potential of nanomaterial technology is considerable. Their nanometric dimension not only endows these materials with unique properties behind multiple applications, but also engenders fears concerning the risks, to which they could lead. Today’s nanotechnology boom has increased the number of potentially exposed workers and many questions remain in relation to assessing the impact of nanomaterials on employee health.
INRS recently published a new brochure dealing with nanomaterials: “Current situation and prospects in occupational health and safety”. This brochure introduces the challenges in the nanomaterial risk prevention field, the means deployed for finding solutions and the recommended prevention approach in this uncertain context.
