ProSafe Project Invites Experts to Online Forum on Whether Risk Management Is on Pace with Nanotechnology Innovation

Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

ProSafe has launched an online Delphi Forum on whether risk management is on pace with innovation for nanomaterial uses.   ProSafe will use expert discussion between those working with manufacture and health and safety of specific nanomaterial uses to develop a white paper proposing a path forward for risk management policies for nanomaterial uses.  To join the Forum, follow the instructions below:

  • Go to;
  • In the access code box for “ProSafe Delphi Poll,” enter “Prosafe2015” as the Access Code and click “take survey”;
  • Enter an e-mail address to enter the poll. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to confirm and create a user account.

The Delphi Forum will include a panel review of the discussion so far at the Society for Risk Analysis annual meeting in early December 2015, so the project team hopes to obtain as much input as possible before November 30, 2015.  The material classes considered in the Delphi Forum are titanium dioxide, silicon dioxide, cerium oxide, barium sulphate, silver, and carbon nanotubes.
