Posted on Feb 28, 2016 12:20:00 AM


Course - Stockholm, Sweden
Health risk assessment of chemicals is the scientific method to assess the risk to humans of exposure to different types of chemical substances, such as pharmaceuticals, environmental pollutants, chemicals in cosmetics, clothing or other everyday products and pesticide residues, food additives and other substances in food.
The course starts off with introducing the concepts in risk assessment, e.g. aims of risk assessment, role of risk assessment in risk analysis (risk assessment, risk management, risk communication), different steps in risk assessment (hazard identification, hazard characterisation, exposure assessment, risk characterisation).
It moves on to the different types of data from in vivo/animal, epidemiological and in vitro studies as well as exposure data that are used in risk assessment.
Thereafter it is discussed how the relevance and reliability of the data is assessed, and how different kind of evidence is integrated (for example from animal and epidemiological studies).
