Learn how to put risk assessment into practice
Day One offers a comprehensive coverage of the basics of risk assessment, including what it achieves.
This day is intended for those who have little or no knowledge of Risk Assessment. The learning outcomes are to allow those attending to understand the key data endpoints that make up safety assessment and risk assessment, and to see how the different disciplines fit together and link to exposure assessments (for both human health and the environment). The day will cover chemistry, toxicity and environmental topics and will link these to the DNELs, ADIs, PNECs and routes of exposure. Real life examples will be included as part of the group work to illustrate the concepts which are covered during this session.
Day Two puts risks assessment into practice This day will look at factors that may influence testing methods, together with the justification of test waivers where laboratory work is not required to conclude a hazard and risk assessment. This day will include some practical work. It will follow a test programme through from start to finish using data from a real substance and the detail from the previous day will be put in to a real-life context.
Practical group work forms an integral part of this course and real-life examples are used to illustrate key points, encouraging you to think about solutions to problems and to see the perspective of regulatory agencies and the concerns of environmental lobby groups.
After completing the course, you will:
- understand the process of risk assessment;
- understand the background of the science and exposure estimation used in CSR and Extended-SDS, helping you to decipher incoming SDS;
- be able to think about solutions to problems and see the perspective of regulatory agencies and the concerns of environmental lobby groups.
