Uncertainty concerning nanoparticle safety measures stem from a scarcity of readily accessible, practical, and application-specific information. This constitutes a hazard for the workplace and the environment. We investigated nano-safety questions and interviewed researchers across Switzerland. We created a set of printable, customizable posters with clear guidelines and a 3-D model of a nanoparticle-ready laboratory space, which we both made available online. Through these solutions, we aim to improve the implementation of safe nanoparticle practices and save researchers time and frustration.
