Learning Objectives Upon completion of this unit, students should be able to: 1. Discuss the difference between risk managers and risk assessors. 2. Identify and discuss the four main steps of risk assessment. 3. Evaluate the role of uncertainty and variability in risk assessment. 4. Discuss the elements of risk communication to the general public. 5. Evaluate the differences between conducting risk assessments for carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic substances. 6. Define the hazard quotient and discuss how it is used to evaluate the overall risk associated with a substance. 7. Define common terms encountered in performing a risk assessment. Written Lecture After the toxicity and epidemiological data on a chemical has been collected, how do we decide what levels are safe for public health and the environment? Regulators use the process of risk assessment to set pollutant emission levels based on the benefits and consequences to society. In setting these limits, the exposure to the pollutant, as well as its toxicity, are considered. However, as Phalen & Phalen (2013) point out, there are gaps in the toxicity data due to the fact that most of the data is for large exposures. Our everyday exposure is more moderate, and there is uncertainty regarding the extrapolation of the high-exposure data to lower levels of exposure. There are four main steps involved in risk assessment. Those steps are (1) hazard identification, (2) hazard assessment, (3) exposure assessment, and (4) risk characterization. During the hazard identification stage of a risk assessment, toxicolological, biological, epidemiological, and chemical data is examined to determine how toxic a substance is and what effects if will have on health. The hazard identification of carcinogens is difficult because the effects of certain carcinogens might not be seen for many years after the exposure (Phalen & Phalen, 2013). There are several different classification systems for carcinogens. One main system, used by the EPA, divides carcinogens into seven categories. Following is .
