Co-sponsored by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and the University of California Los Angeles’ Center for the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology, Nanotechnology VI Symposium: Progress in Protection (Nanotech VI) builds on topics discussed at DTSC’s previous nanotechnology symposiums. It also emphasizes occupational safety and health concepts, which are keys to reducing potential risks to workers and the environment from engineered nanomaterials (ENMs).

Discussion topics will include:

  1. Collaboration between DTSC’s Office of the Chief Scientist, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and California’s leading universities to fill data gaps via the development of ENM risk-based guidelines for use in academic research laboratories.
  2. Practical insights from nanomaterial manufacturers regarding health and safety.

Professional certification maintenance points have been authorized by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals and the Registered Environmental Health Specialist Program.

Location: California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI)
University of California, Los Angeles
570 Westwood Plaza,Building 114
Los Angeles, CA 90095

The event will also be webcast. Registration will accommodate either preference by attendees.
