SAFENANO

The Safenano Initiative is a venture by the Institute of Occupational Medicine ( IOM ). The initiative was designed to help industrial and academic communities to quantify and control the risks to their workforce, as well as to consumers, the general population collage and the environment, through both information provision and consultancy services.

The Institute of Occupational Medicine is one of the UK's foremost promoters of responsible nanotechnology development, and possesses extensive experience concerning the potential risks from particles and fibres. A combination of this expertise and state-of-art techniques allows the IOM to extend current knowledge and facilitate comparisons between existing substances and new nanoparticles.

The IOM is actively involved in advising government agencies such as DEFRA on the potential risks of nanotechnology to health, and management of these risks.
