Cadmus is pleased to present a half-day workshop entitled "Nanotechnology: Managing Health and Environmental Risks."

Posted on August 02, 2006

Every day new uses for nanotechnology materials (NM) in commercial products, drug delivery systems, computers, electronics, and construction materials are discovered. Managing this new EHS risk frontier is challenging. This workshop is designed for professionals who need essential information for understanding nanotechnology risks and the implications for their business. It will provide the basics for responsibly managing NM exposure, human health, and safety issues and for learning potential NM impacts on workers, consumers, and the environment. Combining their experience with corporate and governmental clients, workshop instructors Dr. Jo Anne Shatkin, risk assessment expert, and Dr. Brenda Barry, with expertise in toxicology, occupational health, and biosafety, will address these important nanotechnology issues.

Participants will learn:

Current positions of federal agencies regarding regulations for nanotechnology

State-of-the-science regarding the toxicity of NM

Best EHS practices for handling and managing NM
