SAFENANO Hazard and risk

As researchers working in nanotechnology hazard and risk should always be important subjects for you. In our constant search for relevant and interesting information we discovered the site safenano.

The safenano initiative is a venture by the Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM).  It’s UK’s premier independent resource on nanotechnology hazard and risk. It was designed to help industrial and academic communities to quantify and control the risk to their workforce, as well as to consumers, the general population and the environment, through both information and consultancy services.

The IOM is one of Uk’s foremost promoters of responsible nanotechnology development with extensive experience concerning the potential risks from particles and fibres.

In safenano you can also participate in specific weblog related to hazard and risk in nanotechnology, as well as download recent studies on the subject.

  1. Just spotted this blog – thanks for posting it, but felt I should clarify that ‘SAFENANO’ ( which is the UK’s premier independent resource on nanotechnology hazard and risk and ‘Nano Safe’ (a european project) are two separate organisations.
    We look forward to hearing from you on the safenano community blog soon!
