Assessing Exposure to Chemicals in Consumer Products for Alternatives Assessment

Instructors: Peter Fantke, Olivier Jolliet

To meet the increasing need for assessing comparative exposure to chemicals in consumer product applications for alternatives assessment, the aim of this course is to introduce participants to quantitative yet rapid screening level exposure assessment methods. The course first provides a practical overview of an easy to use mass-balance based framework to assess multi-pathway human exposure to chemicals in consumer products, and how to integrate this with health effects modelling based on comparative and quantitative metrics. Participants will then be guided through practical examples of assessing exposure to chemicals in various product applications.
