Toxicological risk assessments

This course gives you background knowledge on how to carry out toxicological risk assessments.
You will learn how to obtain and assess toxicological documentation. We take a closer look at how to carry out hazard identification and risk assessment of chemical substances in various media, such as soil, air, water, food, cosmetics, consumer products and pharmaceuticals.

The course covers the following subjects:

  • Case story
