Due to the possible health hazards associated with nanotechnology, the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) is currently asking for safety regulations surrounding nanomaterials in order to protect workers.
While some studies have shown that only nanoparticles of a particular long, thin shape have the potential to cause harm, the risk associated with nanotechnology deserves further research.
At the recent Science meets Parliament (an event that brings together nearly 200 scientists throughout Australia) Occupational and Health Safety Officer Steve Mullins said Australia needs nanotechnology regulations within a "clear and urgent" time frame. He believes that over the next decade, global revenues related to nanotechnology will increase from about $32 billion to $2.6 trillion.
