Intent of Nanotech VI: Nanotechnology VI will focus on techniques and approaches which can be used to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control occupational exposure to ENM's. The goal is to provide a summary of the state of the ENM Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) disciplines and provide an overview of what EH&S practitioners can do protect their workers now, where the discipline is heading, and what areas require additional research.
Audience: Materials Industries, Product Manufacturers, University Researchers, Workplace Safety Proponents, Regulatory Agencies, Public Interest Groups, and anyone seeking practical knowledge of nanomaterial EH&S.
Continuing Education Credits: Professional certification maintenance points are available for in-person participants:
- American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) - .92 IH Certification Maintenance Points
- Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) - .65 Continuation COC Points/CEUs
- Registered Environmental Health Specialist Program (REHSP) - 7 Contact Hours
Sponsorship: Nanotechnology VI is organized and hosted by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and the University of California Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (UC CEIN). Additional sponsorship is provided by the UCLA California NanoSystems Insitute (CNSI), UCLA Southern California Education and Research Center (SCERC), the UCLA Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH) and the UCLA Luskin Center.
Registration: Nanotechnology VI will be held free of charge. However, registration is required to secure a reservation or to participate in the webcast. Parking will be available on the UCLA campus for a fee of $10.
