Around the world, the production and use of nanomaterials, as well as carcinogenic, mutagenic, reprotoxic substances (CMR) and endocrine disruptors has systematically increased. The increase in production has exposed workers to hazardous substances in practically all branches of the world economy. Readers will have access to up-to-date and comprehensive knowledge on emerging risks related to nanomaterials, endocrine disruptors, reprotoxic, carcinogenic and mutagenic substances, which are related to the development of technologies and workplaces. The book will provide the tools for occupational risk assessment of chemical substances for which there are no safety levels of exposure as well as an indication of methods and measurements to protect human health and reduce chemical risks at the workplace. This book creates awareness for employers, employees and safety experts about new emerging risks related to chemical agents resulting in the reduction of cancer, reproductive system diseases, cases of abnormal child development, hormonal system disorders leading to abnormal metabolism, obesity, and diabetes.
