How can it be determined if nanoparticles are released from a process in the workplace?

Home FAQExposure assessment involves the measurement or estimation of emissions, considering pathways of exposure and influencing factors, in order to obtain concentrations to which workers may be exposed.

Although normal ambient air, whether in the environment or indoors, already contains a large number of particles in the nanometre size range, a well-planned exposure monitoring campaign - using a combination of real-time direct reading instruments, filter sampling and contextual observations - can help to identify presence of any process-related particles in the nanometre range in the workplace environment.

Several standards exist for exposure monitoring of nanomaterials in the workplace.

SAFENANO provides expertise in exposure monitoring to identify and help you control exposure in the workplace. For further information, please visit our service page or contact us.
