Safe handling of nanomaterials

British Standards commissioned IOM to develop a standard to ensure workers could safely use nanomaterials. The first-of-its-kind guide outlined clear procedures in safe handling, disposal and monitoring of exposure levels, and was made widely accessible to all.

This standard spearheaded the development of further industry-related procedures, guides and helped foster healthier, safer places of work and enhance safe use of these materials. More recently, IOM scientists have published comprehensive reviews on human exposure to engineered nanomaterials.
