Limited spaces still available for pre-conference workshop: Proactive nanotechnology risk management: developments in good practice. Tuesday 16th June 2009, 12.30 - 17.30

Nanotechnology Risk Management Workshop at NanoMaterials ’09, hosted by SAFENANO

UK | Posted on June 10th, 2009

SAFENANO, the UK's premier resource on Nanotechnology Health & Safety, is co-hosting a Pre-Conference workshop on Nanotechnology Risk Management at the forthcoming NanoMaterials '09 conference in Bonn, Germany. Limited spaces are still available for those yet to register.

The workshop, to be held on Tuesday June 16th 2009, offers an opportunity to gain valuable insight into the latest knowledge and good practice guidance for the rapidly evolving area of nanotechnology risk issues - an area of utmost priority to any organisation across the nano supply chain wishing to develop their products in a responsible manner.

The workshop has been jointly organised by SAFENANO and AssuredNano®, and will feature input from a range of high-calibre speakers working at the forefront of their fields. These include Dr Gary Hutchison, Lecturer in Biomedicine & Reproductive Toxicology at Edinburgh Napier University; Dr Rob Aitken, Director of SAFENANO and Strategic Consulting at the Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM); Dr Steve Hankin, SAFENANO's Director of Operations & Dr Keith Robson, CEO of AssuredNano®.

Topics to be covered include:

* Current Awareness and Scientific Services for Nanotechnology Risk
* Actual and Potential Nanotechnology Regulation, including voluntary and mandatory reporting schemes for accessing markets
* How physico-chemical characteristics of nanoparticles influence their toxicity, and whether safety can be designed
* Key measurement technologies and control approaches to characterise exposure, inform risk assessment and support safe practice
* Integrative hazard and exposure into risk assessment
* Principles and best practices in assessing and safely managing nanoparticle risk
* The EHS needs of the nanomaterials supply chain

SAFENANO will be exhibiting for the duration of NanoMaterials '09, and AssuredNano® will be represented at the NanoCentral exhibition stand. Both will be available throughout to discuss your nanotechnology EHS questions and needs; we look forward to meeting with you there.
