Nanomaterials Safety

EHS has established interim guidelines to ensure effective control of the use, handling, storage, disposal, and engineering of nanomaterials in laboratories. These guidelines must be read by all participants engaged in the use of nanomaterials during their research. Once you have read the guidelines, you must also register your project in the Safety Management System (SMS). To read the laboratory guidelines (last updated April 23rd, 2014), click here. To register your project, begin here.

Our Nanomaterials Risk Level Management (NRLM) within the SMS, is a control-banding tool used to assess your potential exposure risk based on severity and probability factors associated with your particular project. For more details about our Nanomaterials Risk Level Management System, go to NRLM.
