Keywords: , ,

Health, safety, and environmental issues continue to be a high priority area to be addressed during the commercialization of nanomaterials or nanomaterial-enabled products. Facilities engaged in the production or use of engineered nanomaterials, specifically nanoparticles, are concerned if their processes present any potential for risk because of worker exposure or release to the environment. A basic risk management model could be applied to processes making or using nanomaterials to reduce the potential for incidents or occurrences that lead to risk
