How do I determine if I work safely with nanomaterials?
Health risks can be assessed by comparing quantitative exposure data with a limit value or preliminary nano reference value. Potential health risks can also be estimated qualitatively in case quantitative data are lacking. According to the Arbowet, an employer must take into account the occupational hygiene strategy when implementing control measures. This also applies to measures to reduce risks when working with synthetic nanoparticles. The occupational hygiene strategy is applicable when actions are taken.
