Nano to go! is a practically oriented guidance on safe handling of nanomaterials and other innovative materials at the workplace.

It was developed within the EU FP7 project NanoValid by the German Federal Institute for Occupational health (BAuA).

Nano to go! contains a brochure, field studies, presentations and general documents to comprehensively support risk assessment and risk management. See the flyer for details.

Brochure

The brochure Safe handling of nanomaterials and other advanced materials at workplaces supports risk assessment and risk management when working with nanomaterials. It provides safety strategies and protection measures for handling nanomaterials bound in solid matrices, dissolved in liquids, in soluble or insoluble powder form, and for handling nanofibres. Additional recommendations are given for storage and disposal of nanomaterials, for protection from fire and explosion, for training and instruction courses, and for occupational health.

Field Studies

The field studies comprise practical examples of expert assessment of safety and health at different workplaces. They contain detailed descriptions of several exposure measurements at pilot plants and laboratories. The reports describe methods, sampling strategies and devices, summarise and discuss results, and combine measurements and non-measurement methods.

General

Useful information, templates and examples, such as operating instructions, a sampling protocol, a dialogue guide and a short introduction to safety management and nanomaterials.

 

Presentations

Ready to use presentations for university lecturers, supervisors and instruction courses, complemented with explanatory notes.
