For the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations : final report, July 2006
The occupational health and safety effects of engineered nanoscale particles are mostly unknown. This can be attributed to the relatively recent development of the nanotechnology sector and, as a result, the lack of available information on human exposures and working conditions. As a consequence our abilities to accurately predict the impact of nanoparticle exposures on worker health are limited at this time. This report considers that the greatest gaps in our present knowledge, and those requiring attention as a matter of priority.
