This module and all other modules in the Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety Series require that you first complete PubH X600: Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety Pre-course Survey  There are 19 modules in the series. You will only need to complete the survey one time regardless of the number of modules you chose to complete.

In this module participants will learn to prioritize nanomaterial exposures based on routes of exposure and identify approaches and methods to assess those dermal exposures.


By the end of this module, learners should be able to:

  • Prioritize nanomaterial exposures based on route, i.e. inhalation vs. dermal exposures
  • Recognize determinants of dermal exposures to nanomaterials
  • Describe qualitative and quantitative approaches to assessing dermal exposures
  • Identify sampling and analytical methods to assess dermal exposures to nanomaterials
