NIOSH Publishes PPOP on Nanotechnology Research Center

On June 15, 2016, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) posted a number of Program Performance One-Pagers (PPOP), including a May 2016 PPOP on the NIOSH Nanotechnology Research Center (NTRC). See http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2016-141/pdfs/2016-141.pdf The PPOP states that the NTRC focuses on increasing understanding of hazards and related health risks to workers who make and use nanomaterials and preventing occupational exposures to nanomaterials. The PPOP includes the following future NIOSH actions:
- Analyze biomarkers from research studies of nanomaterial workers;
- Publish the first in a series of nanomaterial handling guidance, "Workplace Design Solutions: Protecting Workers during the Handling/Weighing of Nanomaterials";
- Use data on high volume nanomaterials to characterize the size and location of the nanomaterial workforce; and
- Complete the draft "Current Intelligence Bulletin: Approaches to Developing Occupational Exposure Limits or Bands for Engineered Nanomaterials."
