Exposure Assessment of nano-scale fibrous materials in the workplace based on a new measurement and evaluation process

Project No. FF-FP 0409

Status:

ongoing

Aims:

Highly relevant exposure data on handling fibrous nanomaterials at the workplace are assessed and added to the Nano Exposure and Contextual Information Database (“NECID-database”). The measurements itself and the analytical results are used to test the new measurement strategy, developed under the lead of BAuA, for this kind of materials and to gain hands-on experience to decide whether there are practical necessities which need to be considered in the future.

Activities/Methods:

Timely to the project start the following tasks are conducted:

  • Kick-off meeting with partners and the accompanying expert group to present i.a. project aims, background on the new measurement strategy and next steps
  • Organize and prepare first workplace measurements
  • Updating the new measurement procedure and setting of terms
  • Gaining insights to the requirements and the structure of the NECID-database
