Unions call for urgent nano information

Abstract:
Australian workers need more information to protect themselves from the risks of nanomaterials, say unions.
Renata Musolino, nanotechnology spokesperson for the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), says the findings are contained in a new report commissioned by Safe Work Australia.
"We need urgent changes to ensure adequate information is reaching workplaces, so that employers can comply with their general duties under occupational, health and safety legislation," she says.
