Nanomaterials in Construction: CPWR Research and Resources

November 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Construction workers are increasingly likely to encounter products that contain engineered nanoparticles, which are many times smaller than a human hair. Research shows that some nanoparticles—which now appear in insulation, cement, paints and coatings, wood products, and many other products–pose health hazards, but the risks they pose depend upon exposure. Join this webinar to learn how nanomaterials are used in construction, their risks, and how to be safer with CPWR resources like the Construction Nanomaterials Inventory (eLCOSH Nano), training materials like toolbox talks, and the CPWR Data Center’s new Nanomaterials Data Dashboard.
