Thursday, February 15, 2007 8:30 AM Addressing SH&E Management and Nanotechnology Robert C. Adams CIH, CSP Env. Sciences, Eng and Tech Manager Environ. Intl. Corp Marsh 1166 Avenue of th The Americas 35 Floor

LOCATION

One of the most cutting edge issues we continue to get inquiries about is nanotechnology. SH&E professionals want to know more about nano's potential impact on SH&E, organizations, and the profession itself. Perhaps their greatest concern lies with the health-related aspects of nanotechnology and the effect on the human body. During a recent survey conducted with ASSE Practice Specialty members, more than 80% of the ASSE member respondents cited nanotechnology as a significant future issue for SH&E professionals Nanotechnology continues to receive routine mass media coverage which frequently focuses on the negative aspects of this growing field. Some of the media coverage has accurately identified the risks and benefits of this technology while others have been completely erroneous. Meanwhile, new products enter the marketplace and research and development continues to identify new applications for these nanomaterials. This presentation will provide the safety health and environmental professional with the latest developments in the area of nanotechnology
