This class will provide a process for 1) responsible management of nano and advanced materials; 2) anticipating where nano and advanced materials (3D printing) may be in the workplace; 3) recognizing the potential for occupational exposures; 4) evaluating exposures using a variety of sampling equipment; and, 5) controlling exposures based on prevention through design.

Course outline

  • Introduction to Nano and Advanced Materials
  • Exposure Assessment for Engineered Nanomaterials
  • Health and Safety Considerations
  • Sampling Recommendations
  • Controls for 3D Printing
  • Risk Management
  • Application of Prevention through Design Principles

Course outcomes

Upon completion, students will be able to:

  • Assess a workplace for nano and advanced materials (including 3D printing).
  • Choose what types of IH samples should be collected.
  • Develop a sampling plan.
  • Determine if controls are adequate.
  • Apply the hierarchy of controls to nano and advanced materials exposures.


Participants should have a basic understanding of what constitutes an engineered nanomaterial, 3D printing, industrial hygiene sampling techniques, and the hierarchy of controls.

Time to complete

Participants will have 90 days from the date of purchase to view the session recordings and submit the online evaluation for credit.
