ABSTRACT
This document provides guidance on occupational health and safety measures relating to engineered nanomaterials, including the use of engineering controls and appropriate personal protective equipment, guidance on the management of spills and accidental releases, as well as guidelines on the proper handling of these materials during their disposal. It is intended for use by competent persons, such as health and safety officials, production managers, environmental managers, occupational / industrial hygienists and others responsible for non-operating. danger of production and handling facilities, processing and disposal of manufactured nanomaterials. It applies to manufactured materials made up of nano-objects such as nanoparticles, nanofibers, nanotubes, nanowires, as well as agglomerates and aggregates of these materials (NOAA).
