Risk Calculation Tools

Several risk tools that use a simple model, have been provided to estimate Human Health Risks.  The tool calculates exposure (i.e., dose) via ingestion, inhalation and dermal contact. Calculated doses are then used to calculate expressions of human health risk:

  • Hazard Quotients (HQs) for non-carcinogens
  • Incremental Lifetime Cancer Risk (ILCRs) for carcinogens
