This module, provided by the Center for Nanotechnology Education (Nano-Link), introduces students to standards and regulations pertinent to nanomaterials. This module was developed in collaboration with the Midwest Emerging Technologies Public Health and Safety Training (METPHAST) Program. Included in the module is a video that runs 63:43 minutes, a video that runs 06:04 minutes, a hands-on activity entitled Identifying Occupational Exposure Bands, and presentation slides. The learning objectives for this module are as follows: 

  • Show how occupational exposure limits are established and distinguish among types of occupational exposure limits
  • Show how occupational exposure bands or provisional exposure limits can be set in the absence of reliable toxicological evidence
  • Locate relevant occupational exposure limits for nanomaterials and select an appropriate benchmark exposure level for a nanomaterial

Users must create a free account in order to access all of the materials.
