Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) Code of Practice for Handling of Nanomaterials in Laboratories, a Contribution to the Third-Party Funded Project "NanoValid" of Nordmiljö AB (Sweden) in the EU 7th Framework Programme
- Project number:
- F 2268
Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA)
- Planned end:
In consequence of the high innovative potential, a broad diversity of different new nanomaterial is being handled by research institutions, start-up companies and small/medium sized businesses. During this project, BAuA in cooperation with an international consortium will develop a draft OSH Code of Practice for safe handling of nanomaterial in laboratories. The code will be evaluated in field surveys and will be supplemented by a corresponding training concept. The objective is to create a sound basis for consistent standards regarding safe handling of nanomaterial in laboratory scale based on the EU precautionary principle.
