Working Safely with Nanomaterials

Worker’s Compensation (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung: DGUV) in Germany has provided its fourth free e-learning tool online for safe work with nanomaterials. The current module (available here in German only) offers visitors a game-like overview of the use of nanotechnologies in the fabric industry and information on working safely with nanomaterials. The DGUV has previously offered nanoramas on construction, labor, and vehicle repair.

“Nanorama” is a neologism based on “nano” and “panorama”. The tool enables users to move about a virtual room that represents occupational situations involving nanomaterials. Multiple-choice questions and information windows help users learn how to deal with nanomaterials safely.
