Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Hoboken, New Jersey : Wiley, 2015Description: 298 p. : ill.ISBN: 0470467061; 9780470467060.MeSH subject(s): Santé et travail -- hygiène du travail | Occupational Exposure | Occupational Exposure -- analysis | Occupational Exposure -- prevention & control | Nanoparticles | Nanoparticles -- toxicity | Nanostructures | Nanostructures -- toxicity | Industry | Nanotechnology | Nanotechnology -- trends | Safety Management | MonographSummary: Exposure Assessment and Safety Considerations for Working with Engineered Nanoparticles addresses what is currently known about acceptable levels of exposures to nanoparticles are and identifies best practices to follow to evaluate and control such exposures. The field of nanotechnology health and safety is growing rapidly, due to the thousands of commercial and medical applications for engineered nanoparticles that are currently available or under development, and there is a strong need for knowledge and guidelines associated with the evaluation and control of engineered nanoparticle exposures. Exposure Assessment and Safety Considerations for Working with Engineered Nanoparticles features: Methods to evaluate and control worker and environmental exposures to engineered nanoparticles ; Guidance for concerned EHS professionals on acceptable levels of exposure to nanoparticles ; Best practices to be followed by all researchers when working with engineered nanoparticles ; Knowledge on toxicity of nanoparticles. The book includes a wide range of topics, including why we should be concerned about nanoparticle exposure, the current knowledge on the toxicity of nanoparticles, and evaluation and control of exposure. The authors illustrate evaluation and control methods through the use of detailed case studies drawn from their research.
