Earlier this week, the International Council on Nanotechnology (ICON) at Rice University launched GoodNanoGuide, a website devoted to safety protocols for handling nanomaterials. The site has a "Basic" section for those who are just beginning to deal with nanomaterials, an "Intermediate" one for those with some knowledge but in need of more, and an "Advanced" section for the more experienced. At each level, there are links that are focused on specific topics, such as protecting workers using nanomaterials in an industrial setting.
The site is easy to navigate and provides much needed information. It’s well worth taking a look at , whatever level one happens to be at.
