Integrated Environmental Assessment, Part IV

Human Health Risk Assessment


  • The human health component of an LCIA aims to assess in a comparative way the multiple impacts and large number of toxic substances that are involved in the life cycle of products. This often differs from the scope of regulatory toxicological assessments, which generally focus on ensuring that safe doses are not surpassed by exposures at any location or point in time.
