Jump to navigation Jump to search Environment, health and safety EHS is a discipline and specialty that studies and implements practical aspects of environmental protection and safety at work.
However, nanotechnology may also present unintended health risks or changes to the environment. It is presumed that some of these chemicals may present new, unexpected challenges to human health, and their safety should be evaluated prior to release.
These cross-cutting issues are not yet understood well enough to inform the development of systems for measuring and tracking their impact. Further exploration is warranted. The environmental health landscape will continue to evolve and may present opportunities for additional research, analysis, and monitoring.
Blood Lead Levels As ofthere are approximately 4 million houses or buildings that have children living in them who are potentially being exposed to lead. Nearly half a million U. Since no safe blood lead level have been identified for children, any exposure should be taken seriously.
However, since lead exposure often occurs with no obvious signs or symptoms, it often remains unrecognized. References 1 World Health Organization.
