734  Nanotechnology: No Small Risk

Multinational companies and startups are capitalizing on nanotechnology to enhance processes and products. Risks, both real and perceived, are becoming apparent as research continues. Known controls can be effective if limitations are taken into account. Creative risk analysis, existing OSHA controls, best practices and up-to-date knowledge are required to control quantified and un-quantified exposures. As nanotechnology spreads among industry market segments, SH&E professionals must deal with exposures not existing in the world of large particles. This session will help you understand how to approach the risk management of nanotechnology exposures, which is essential in today’s workplace.
