In august last year we already talked about an e-learning tool that has been developed in cooperation of the DGUV and the BG RCI of the Innovationsgesellschaft St. Gallen. The Tool is about an interactive laboratory. This "nanorama laboratory" shall enable people to work safely with nanomaterials.


At http://nano.dguv.de/nanorama/bgrci/en/ this tool has been translated and can now be explored in english. Besides the earlier nanoramas "Bau" and "KFZ" it is the first one available in two languages. That way the tool is availble to a broad, international audience and can contribute to a safe work environment with nanomaterials worldwide. Another nanorama adressing the topic of textiles is in progress. The nanoramas are part of the nano-portal "working safe with nanomaterials" from the Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung (DGUV).
