Online survey of nanomaterial exposure scenarios

The Institute of Occupational Medicine are running an online survey of nanomaterial exposure scenarios experienced across value chains within the UK’s industrial and research communities.  The results of this survey will help to inform the scope of further exposure measurement and modelling approaches within the NANoREG project.
