Fundamentals in Risk Assessment – Topic 1: Ecological Risk Assessment (May 2 & 4)

May 2, 2017
@ 9:00 AM
- May 4, 2017
@ 9:00 AM
  UTC-8

How many times have you wrestled with sites that have contamination which exceed the numerical standards and require 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.This two part webinar on ecological risk assessment will cover the following areas:
  • Development of conceptual exposure models for ecological receptors
  • Estimation of contaminant exposures by ecological receptors
  • Determination of ecological toxicity reference values
  • Characterization of ecological risks
  • Discussion of uncertainty in ecological risk estimates

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

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 reeptors
  • 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:


Use of Practical Statistics in Site Investigations and Risk Assessments (May 16 & 18th)

May 16, 2017
@ 9:00 AM
- May 18, 2017
@ 9:00 AM
  UTC-8

Once we have completed the site investigation, we have to make sense of the data obtained. Dr. Dennis Helsel will guide you through practical approaches and tools for a statistical analysis of your data.Following areas will be covered:
  • Goal for statistical methods
  • The mean and UCL95
  • The geometric mean and the median
  • The 90th and other percentiles
  • One population or two?
  • Weighting observations unequally
  • Comparison of existing data to background concentrations
  • Dealing with outliers
