Project: Current practices for occupational handling of nanomaterials

Goal: Facilitate the documentation of current best practice guidelines for identifying, managing and reducing risks for the production, handling, use and disposal of nanomaterials across all lifecycle phases.

Follow-up to Seminal Industry Survey Now Underway: A team at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) is now collecting information about occupational practices from producers and users of nanomaterials. This project is a follow-on to the ICON survey published in 2006. Please consider contributing to this project by agreeing to a brief interview. All information you submit, including your identity, remains strictly confidential. For more information, contact Professor Patricia Holden (holden at bren dot ucsb dot edu).
