Category: Reports

This Report describes the current state-of-knowledge relating to nanotechnology that is relevant to radiation safety programs. The Report considers operational health physics practices that may need to be modified when nanotechnology is involved and those that can continue to be performed in the traditional manner. Specifically, this Report provides guidance on contamination control, engineered and administrative controls, personal protective equipment including respiratory protection, training, waste disposal, and emergency response. The Report includes specific guidance for conducting internal dosimetry programs when nanomaterials are being handled.
