Human Health Risk Assessment

HETI performs human health risk assessments to evaluate chemical, physical, and biological hazards and possible effects on the population and the environment and to estimate the occurrence of an adverse health effect in a given population under certain exposure conditions. Such assessments can involve a variety of component tasks, depending on the specifics of the situation, but typically include hazard identification, dose response assessment, exposure assessment, and risk characterization. Along with the assessment, HETI can recommend and design programs to help reduce identified risks.
