Nano-safety: What Workers Need to Know

Summary: As with all materials, if you work with nanoparticles a few minutes of thought about safety will help you avoid problems later. Join Dr. Dominick Fazarro of the University of Texas at Tyler as he discusses nanoparticle safety. This talk provides a reasonable discussion of the potential hazards of nanoparticles and steps that can be taken to reduce these hazards. This talk is useful for those who work with nanoparticles or manage a facility that handles nanoparticles

Background: Topics covered include:

  • Future of nanotechnology
  • Potential hazards of nanoparticles
  • Behaving safely
  • Laboratory practices for workers
  • Resources for better understanding the safety of nanoparticles

Presentation length: 54 minutes
