Webinar: From Nanomaterials to Advanced Materials: A Health and Safety Perspective

NAMSS (Education, Advocacy, Patient Safety) offers a continuous flow of webinars that contribute in their commitment to enhancing the professional development of and recognition for professionals in the medical staff and credentialing services field.

Advances in nanoscale science have resulted in materials that are more active, more efficient, and more versatile in their commercial applications. A key outgrowth has been the development and deployment of ‘Advanced Materials’. These materials are chemically and biologically more active and more efficient for the specific functions for which they are designed. Advanced materials are combining with the development of new manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing, 3D printing, and engineered/synthetic biology, to give us a vision of the new materials, processes, and products that make up ‘21st Century Manufacturing’. The challenge for the EHS professional is to remain current on the issues of potential health hazards, the degree to which these materials are being introduced into new manufacturing technologies, and the way they are used and incorporated into products. The types of risk assessment and management approaches needed to support safe, responsible, and sustainable commercialization of nano- and advanced-material-enabled products can be challenging, but a lot of progress has been made in the past 10 years. Many of the lessons learned with nanotechnology will have direct re-application opportunities in the rapidly emerging world of advanced materials and the 21st Century manufacturing environment.
