Organization: IEST
Publication Date: 1 July 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 48
scope:

This Recommended Practice (RP) provides facility design information intended to minimize risks for personnel associated with nanotechnology research and production. Using "Prevention through Design" principles disseminated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), issues related to incoming materials, products, processes, and byproducts are addressed and methods of risk mitigation suggested [NIOSH (2011a)]. Facility design and response systems for conditions including normal operation, external emergency, and internal emergency are described. Information is provided to assist in the development of an effective nanotechnology environmental health and safety program.

This document is useful to all those involved in facilities that develop or use nanomaterials. This Recommended Practice (RP) is intended to complement IEST-RP-NANO200: Planning of Nanoscale Science and Technologies Facilities: Guidelines for Design, Construction, and Start-up.
