Researchers discuss safety guidelines for handling nanomaterials

U.S. officials are developing "best practices" guidelines that businesses may want to follow when handling nanomaterials, a government research official said Tuesday. Given a shortage of research on the health effects of new engineered nanomaterials, officials from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), working at the direction of an interagency nanotechnology group, are developing the guidelines and hope to release them within a year, according to Andrew Maynard, a senior service fellow at NIOSH, a research agency.
