I am wondering what approach your institutions/ organizations are taking to manage nanosafety in labs?
We have some general guidance for our labs based on the NIOSH publication from last summer on our EHS website. We also have specific orientation and training in our NanoScale Science and Technology Facility that is managed by the safety manager in that department.
But, what I'm looking for is guidance in how to approach raising awareness and possibly training the researchers using nanoparticles and materials that are falling through the cracks on our campus?
I appreciate your comments.
