Popis

This publication describes a method proposed by the Dutch independent research organisation TNO, namely Stoffenmanager Nano (version 1.0). This method is a risk-banding tool developed for employers and workers to help them to prioritise the health risks occurring as a result of exposure to manufactured nano objects. It considers a broad range of worker scenarios. The tool also assists in the implementation of control measures to reduce exposure levels. To prioritise health risks, Stoffenmanager Nano combines the available hazard information of a substance with a qualitative estimate of the potential for inhalation exposure. The tool offers a practical approach for risk prioritisation in exposure situations in which quantitative risk assessment is currently not possible.
