Change in webcast time for Wednesday event on NIOSH Nanotechnology Research Center progress report

WASHINGTONThe earliest and most extensive exposures to engineered nanoparticles are most likely to occur in the workplace. In fact, such exposures are already occurring.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is mandated by law to conduct research and develop guidance on worker safety and health. With limited resources over the past two years, NIOSHworking in collaboration with partners in other federal agencies, countries, academia, industry, labor and NGOshas been conducting research and developing guidance to address the occupational safety and health of workers exposed to nanomaterials.

What progress has been made in understanding and preventing work-related injuries and illnesses potentially caused by nanoparticles and nanomaterials? This question is the focus of an event on Wednesday, February 28th at 12:30 p.m. in the 5th Floor Conference Room of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (www.wilsoncenter.org/directions).
