Résumé
As production and use of nanomaterials in commercial products grow it is imperative to
ensure these materials are used safely with minimal unwanted impacts on human health or
the environment. Foremost among the populations of potential concern are workers who
handle nanomaterials in a variety of occupational settings, including university laboratories,
industrial manufacturing plants and other institutions. Knowledge about prudent practices for
handling nanomaterials is being developed by many groups around the world but may be
communicated in a way that is difficult for practitioners to access or use. The
GoodNanoGuide is a collaborative, open-access project aimed at creating an international
forum for the development and discussion of prudent practices that can be used by
researchers, workers and their representatives, occupational safety professionals,
governmental officials and even the public. The GoodNanoGuide is easily accessed by
anyone with access to a web browser and aims to become a living repository of good
practices for the nanotechnology enterprise. Interested individuals are invited to learn more
about the GoodNanoGuide at http://goodnanoguide.org.
