European NanOSH Conference - Nanotechnology: A Critical Area in Occupational Safety and Health

Abstract:
The Conference will discuss global safety issues surrounding nanoparticles and nanotechnologies, in occupational safety and health in particular; and will provide an insight into future actions for assuring the safety, and thereby the future success of nanotechnology. The NanOSH conference is organized by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health.

Why it is critical now?

Nanoparticles provide a qualitatively new basis for a number of industries. The technologies that utilize them, i.e. deal with matter on a nanometer scale, do so in a large number of industrial and consumer applications. These applications present huge potential for both technological and economic benefits. Nanotechnologies may also provide important means to save raw materials and to promote sustainable development. The growth rate of nanoparticle research, the rapidity of nanotechnology development, and the speed of new industrial and consumer products is dramatic. This area is currently critical, because we are surrounded by nanoparticles all the time, and must hence act without delay.
