Good Nano Guide Introduction 2010 02

  1. 1. The GoodNanoGuideA new tool for collaboration on workplace safety<br /><br />
  2. 2. The Issue<br />“Surveyed organizations reported that they believe there are special risks related to the nanomaterials they work with…and that they are actively seeking additional information on how to best handle nanomaterials.”<br /><br />
  3. 3. What Information is Available?<br />Lots of studies on nanomaterial risk…<br />…but few address occupational issues directly<br />All papers<br />Occupational<br />relevance<br />
  4. 4. Other Guidance is Available<br />From governments…<br />US<br />Canada<br />Europe<br />Japan<br />IRSST<br />DOE NSRC<br />NIOSH<br />NanoSafe2<br />METI<br />…and standards bodies<br />E2535-07<br />ISO/TR 12885<br />PD 6699-2:2007<br />
  5. 5. But is it getting to the practitioners??<br />If not, WHY not??<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. The GoodNanoGuide<br />Protected Internet site on occupational practices for the safe handling of nanomaterials<br />Multiple stakeholders contribute, share and discuss information<br />Modern, interactive, up-to-date<br />Launched 1 June 2009<br /><br />
  8. 8. What is a Wiki?<br />A Wiki is central, shared repository of online information<br />Some wikis are familiar …<br />others serve a specialized audience<br />They all share some common features:<br /> Anyone can edit the pages <br /> Editing is easy and requires no special tools<br /> Formatting is simple<br /> Changes are easily tracked Wikis for Dummies<br />
  9. 9. Why a Wiki for Nano Handling Practices?<br />
  10. 10. How Content is Organized<br />
  11. 11. OHS Reference Manual<br />Intermediate<br />
