Risk Assessment

Risk Assessment refers to characterizing the nature and extent of health hazards to individuals and biological receptors from chemical pollutants and other stressors that may be present in the atmosphere. Risk assessor estimates the occurrence and extent of human and ecological exposures that may happen as a result of contact with the tainted medium. This assessment of exposure is then united with information on the intrinsic toxicity of the chemical to predict the possibility, nature and magnitude of the antagonistic health effects that may occur. 

Environmental Risk Assessment is a scientific process that identifies and evaluates threats to the environments, in particular to living organisms, their habitats and the ecosystem. The causes of environmental threats are diverse. Some are natural like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and some are results of human activities like industrialisation and urbanisation. Environmental Risk Assessment is done in number of areas like genetically modified organisms, pesticides, plant pests, plant species and feed additives. The purpose of this assessment is to assess the seriousness of the harm to the environment.
