- Hazard Identification
determines whether exposure to a chemical can increase the
incidence of a particular adverse health effect and the likelihood
of occurrence in humans.
- Dose-response assessment
presents the relationship between the magnitude of exposure and
adverse effects. For example, the length of time (magnitude of exposure)
you stay in the sun without protection is directly related to the
severity of sunburn (adverse health effect) you receive.
