Summary
The Nanoparticle Occupational Safety and Health (NOSH) Consortium was formed in December 2005 with 16 full and strategic members, including Procter & Gamble, DuPont, Dow Chemical, Intel Corporation, Air Products & Chemicals, Inc., Boeing, Degussa, Department of Energy Office of Science, Environmental Defense, GE, UK-Health and Safety Executive, Kimberly-Clark, US-NIOSH, PPG, and Rohm & Haas. The goal of the consortium was to answer specific questions which would benefit a broad global audience in terms of helping to define what would be best practice to protect workers with respect to handling engineered nanoparticles. The NOSH Consortium was formed with the idea of pooling resources. The project is now complete and the executive summary provides details of publications and outline results.
