Prior to accessing your first module in the Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety series, we need you to complete a short survey. This information will satisfy our funding requirements and tell us who is interested in learning about occupational and nanotechnology health and safety. Once you have completed and submitted the survey, you have access to all the modules without repeating the survey. There are 19 modules in the series. You may take these modules in sequence or at your own discretion. Thank you for your interest in the METPHAST Modules.
Exposures to Nanomaterials in Products
(This module is one of 15 modules on Nanotechnology Health and Safety.)
This course will examine the impacts of cutting, sawing, drilling into, recycling, sanding, weathering and aging on various nanocomposites and nanocoatings, the potential for release of nanoparticles from these forces, and the risks of worker exposure.
By the end of the module, learners should be able to:
- Classify products based on how nanomaterials are incorporated
- Categorize routes by which the general public may be exposed to nanomaterials in products.
- Describe how workers may be exposed to nanomaterials in products
- Identify members of public at greater exposure risk
