Chalupka Publishes Article on Managing Occupational Exposure to Nanomaterials

Stephanie Chalupka (Nursing) is the author of “Management of Occupational Exposure to Advanced Nanomaterials” which was published in Workplace Health and Safety, the journal of the American Association of Occupational Health Nursing.

Nanotechnology encompasses a broad range of products and applications. As nanotechnology has progressed, the complexity of nanomaterials has increased.

Traditional occupational health risk assessment and management approaches have had limited utility when applied to first-generation “passive nanomaterials.” Due to their complex nature, advanced nanomaterials present a significant challenge in occupational risk assessment and risk management.

In this article, Chalupka presents a more proactive approach to meet the challenges posed by advanced nanomaterials in the workplace.
