Nanotechnologies involve the design, characterisation, production and application of structures, devices and systems by controlling the shape and size at the nanoscale for example, in the size range from approximately one nanometre to 100 nanometres. This involves the manufacture of nanoparticles, nanoobjects, nanostructures or nanoconstructs with at least one dimension less than 100 nanometres to give them useful chemical, physical, electrical or optical properties that can be used in new and enhanced products. This assessment tool may be used by organisations, to document practices and procedures, and work health and safety regulators or occupational hygienists when visiting nanotechnology organisations.
