Is it ‘safe’ to use the chemical in this way?

Many countries have, as part of their chemical control and worker safety regulations, a requirement for a scientific assessment to be undertaken. These are called human health risk assessments.

The purpose of this introductory webinar is to cover the basics of chemical risk assessment for human health. It is perfect for anyone who needs to understand the approach to undertaking human health risk assessments and/or is involved in product stewardship.


What you will learn

The session will cover the risk assessment process, specifically

  1. Hazard identification – including the type of data which can be used, where it can be found, how to assess its reliability.
  2. Hazard characterisation/dose-response assessment – thresholded/non-thresholded effects. How to use uncertainty/safety/assessment factors.
  3. Exposure assessment – exposure groups, exposure duration, measurements or use of models, exposure pathways. How chemistry can be used to predict likely exposure routes.
  4. Risk characterisation and risk management – how to undertake the risk characterisation, and the role of risk management.

The webinar will enable those attending the webinar to understand the underlying principles of risk assessment, data sources and evaluation of quality and reliability. Furthermore, it will show you how to link the data to exposure assessment and interpret the result. Worked examples will be used to illustrate the theory.
