Fundamentals in Risk Assessment – Topic 2: Human Health Risk Assessment Webinar (May 9 & 11)
May 9, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - May 11, 2017 @ 9:00 AM UTC-8
How many times have you wrestled with sites that have contamination which exceeds the numerical standards and requires cost effective risk-based remediation? The scientific principles of contaminated site risk assessment are simple, yet their successful implementation is often elusive; navigating the deep waters of regulatory guidance can be daunting. Learn to identify site investigation data gaps, conduct a problem formulation, and take a conceptual exposure model through quantitative steps of human health and ecological risk assessment. Find out how risk assessment findings are used to support effective risk-based remediation solutions. This two part webinar on human health risk assessment will cover the following areas:
- Development of conceptual exposure models for human receptors
- Estimation of contaminant exposures by human receptors
- Determination of human toxicity reference values
- Characterization of human health risks
- Discussion of uncertainty in human health risk estimates
Organized around 2 one-hour sessions:
- Session 1: May 9th (9-10 AM PST / 12-1 PM EST) and
- Session 2: May 11th (9-10 AM PST / 12-1 PM EST)
Scott Steer (MET, R.P. Bio) is an environmental toxicologist with 16 years’ experience in human health and ecological risk assessment. Scott also serves on the Board of directors of the BC Contaminated Sites Approved Professional (CSAP) Society.
