- Using nanomaterials at work
This new guidance, produced by HSE, is aimed at SMEs. It is specifically about the manufacture and manipulation of all nanomaterials including carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and high aspect ration nanomaterials (HARNS). It has been prepared in response to emerging evidence about the toxicity of these materials.
- The use of Nanomaterials in UK Universities: an overview of occupational health and safety
HSE wishes to increase its knowledge and understanding of the occupational use and manufacture of engineered nanoparticles in the UK. As part of this work, HSE has worked with The UK NanoSafety Group to gain an overview of the work with nanomaterials in a small number of UK universities.
- Working Safely with Nanomaterials in Research and Development
This new guidance has been developed by The UK Nanosafety Partnership Group (UKNSPG) and is aimed at employers, managers, health and safety advisors, and users of particulate nanomaterials in research and development. This guidance has been endorsed by HSE and contains a foreword by Judith Hackitt.
- Regulatory review
This is a review of the adequacy of current regulatory regimes to secure effective regulation of nanoparticles created by nanotechnology (published March 2006).
- Health effects of particles produced for nanotechnologies EH75/6
A scientific review, undertaken by HSE's Industrial Chemicals Unit, evaluating the limited scientific information available to HSE at the time (published in 2004).
