Salem, NH, February 8th
In January, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) posted the science blog, “Understanding the Broad Class of Carbon Nanotubes and Nanofibers (CNT/F) Used or Produced in U.S. Facilities.” The blog discussed and summarized a recent article from the journal Particle and Fibre Technology
The blog describes CNT/F and other engineered nanomaterials as holding great promise for society by revolutionizing many industries with applications from medicine to manufactured composites. However, it also warns that the properties that make them so promising may also have the potential to cause harm to people if inhaled. Understanding potential health effects, conducting field exposure studies, and developing good practices promotes safe handling and responsible development of products using these materials, according to the authors.
Nanotechnologies are a rapidly growing component of modern industry and medical research. They come in a wide variety of compositions and shapes which make them useful in everything from consumer and medical products, to energy production and aerospace. There are workers in many industries today that utilize nanomaterials and have the potential to be exposed to these unique materials through inhalation, skin contact or ingestion.
