Human Health Benefit & Risk Assessment
With the technical expertise to complete all steps involved in health benefit and risk assessment-typically hazard identification, evaluation of dose-response/concentration-response/exposure-response, exposure assessment, health incidence data collection, and risk characterization—we have:
- Conducted benefit analyses and risk assessments for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency offices;
- Developed new methods for quantifying risk;
- Built computer models to calculate risk efficiently and cost-effectively;
- Evaluated potential human health benefits of proposed air and drinking water regulations;
- Assessed risks in vulnerable populations, such as children or those of low socioeconomic status; and
- Conducted methods research and application.
