Presentations Available from International Symposium on Asbestos-Like Fibers from Nanomaterials and Other Advanced Materials

On June 14, 2016, Germany's Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) posted the presentations from the April 20, 2016, symposium, "WHO fibres from nanomaterials and other advanced materials: Do we have to tackle a new asbestos problem in OSH?" See http://www.baua.de/en/Topics-from-A-to-Z/Hazardous-Substances/Workshops/Symposium-2016/Symposium-2016.html The goal was to initiate a transdisciplinary debate among representatives from academia, regulatory agencies, industry, and other interested parties in the governance landscape on advanced materials. It was also addressed to the members of the World Health Organization (WHO) Guideline Development Group, "WHO Guidelines on Nanomaterials and Workers' Health," which held a face-to-face meeting on April 18-19, 2016. Presentations include:
- WHO fibres from nanomaterials -- a brief look into history;
- The Tortoise and the Hare -- Governance challenges under conditions of scientific uncertainty;
- Hazards and risks from WHO fibres at the workplace;
- National Asbestos Profile -- Germany 2014;
- WHO fiber release, workplace exposure measurement and assessment;
- Fibrous Nano and Advanced Materials; and
- Communication and Co-operation: Trans-disciplinary approaches for a safe material design.
