Nano-Link will be upgrading our website this summer!  Over the weekend of June 17-18 our site will be moved to a different home, with a new look and feel and lots of great new features.  

Our web address is going to stay the same, so you still will find us at http://www.nano-link.org.  But behind the scenes we are gong to be moving to different web and email servers.  As we are starting to make the changes needed for this, you may find that certain things on our current site aren't quite the way they used to be leading up to the move. 

If you have any issues, please contact us immediately at help@nano-link.org so we can help you get the answers and resources you need! 

Risk Assessment Principles

Environmental risk is the likelihood of injury, disease, or death resulting from human exposure to a potential environmental hazard. Learners will explore the three key steps of risk assessment: hazard characterization, dose-response evaluation, and human exposure evaluation.

By the end of the module, learners should be able to:

  • Describe how severity of occupational hazards is expressed
  • Illustrate how hazard severity and exposure are combined to characterize risk
  • Identify strategies to assess worker exposures to potential hazards
  • Explain approaches to managing risk once it has been characterized
  • Recognize uncertainties associated with risk management
