Abstract:
Existing engineering controls can be effectively applied to control employee exposures to nanomaterials in the workplace. These controls can be quantitatively evaluated using a tracer gas as a surrogate for nanomaterials. Our conclusion is that the validation of engineering controls using a quantitative method such as tracer gas testing will assure that employee exposures to nanomaterials are well-controlled.
