Nanorisk newsletter addresses nanotechnology in the workplace

Abstract:
With hundreds of companies already producing nano raw materials such as particles or carbon nanotubes, and many more using them in their production processes, workers are facing increasing exposure to these materials. New technology, whether it is a novel cancer treatment or an innovative approach to farming, almost always comes with risk. Those risks are often first - and most severely - felt by industry workers, and nanotechnology is no different. Today, workers around the world are exposed to nanoparticles on a daily basis. There is much speculation, yet so far, little definitive information about how exposure affects workers.
