On December 7, 2018, the Occupational Cancer Research Center (OCRC) held a seminar on "Perspectives on Mitigating Exposures to Engineered Nanomaterials in the Workplace." See http://www.occupationalcancer.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Rasmussen_OEH_7Dec18.pdf The seminar was part of the Occupational and Environmental Health seminar series supported by the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, Public Health Ontario, OCRC, and the Center for Research Expertise in Occupational Disease. Pat Rasmussen, Health Canada/University of Ottawa, gave the presentation, addressing:

- The unique properties of engineered nanomaterials (definitions);
- Control banding approach: Selection of control measures based on hazard and exposure (Canadian Standards Association (CSA)/International Organization for Standardization (ISO));
- Harmonized tiered approach: To assess potential exposures in workplaces (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD));
- How research feeds into CSA/ISO and OECD exposure measurement and mitigation efforts; and
- Accessing nano workplace safety information in Ontario.
