  • assess
  • To assess whether a ground water source is at risk for fecal contamination, agencies responsible for monitoring water supplies generally test for the presence of nonpathogenic as indicator organisms. (extension.org)
  • asbestos
  • An approximately twofold increase in risk was observed for having lived with a family member who worked in the Eternit asbestos cement plant (OR=2.4, 95% CI 1.3 to 4.4), or having been exposed from domestic or environmental sources (OR=2.0, 95% CI 1.2 to 3.2). (bmj.com)
  • Their contribution, Critical reappraisal of Balangero chrysotile and mesothelioma risk , (1) first disputed whether most of the cancers were asbestos cancer at all. (hazards.org)
  • programme
  • The admission to the master programme Quantitative Asset and Risk Management therefore requires the successful completion of a bachelor's or master's degree in social sciences, economic / business studies, in natural sciences, or in law at a university or a university of applied sciences. (fh-vie.ac.at)
  • The admission process for the master degree programme Quantitative Asset and Risk Management consists of a written application, a structured interview including a small presentation on a financial topic and a multiple-choice test. (fh-vie.ac.at)
  • The master degree programme in Quantitative Asset and Risk Management does not expect deep previous knowledge in the field of asset and risk management. (fh-vie.ac.at)
  • This programme recognises the increasing demand from both industry and enforcement bodies to integrate occupational health, safety and environmental management issues. (birmingham.ac.uk)
  • lung
  • Based on these analyses, the lifetime excess lung cancer risk at the current OSHA standard for cadmium fumes of 100 micrograms per cubic meter was estimated to be approximately 50 to 111 lung cancer deaths per 1000 workers exposed to cadmium for 45 years. (cdc.gov)
  • The aim of this study was to use ODSS to identify high-risk industry and occupation groups for lung cancer in Ontario. (bmj.com)
  • Age-adjusted, sex-stratified Cox proportional hazard models compared the risk of lung cancer within one industry/occupation versus all other groups in the cohort. (bmj.com)
  • The Occupational Disease Surveillance System (ODSS) confirmed many well-established high-risk groups for lung cancer such as those in construction, mining and transportation. (bmj.com)
  • studies
  • The resultant issues for purposes of modeling, source tracking and risk assessment require careful consideration in future research studies. (extension.org)
  • However, there are studies of animals exposed to CNT and CNF that are informative in predicting potential human health effects consistent with ways in which scientists traditionally have used such data in recommending risk management strategies. (cdc.gov)
  • NIOSH conducted a quantitative assessment of risk using the animal studies with sufficient dose-response data, which included two subchronic (90-day) inhalation studies [Ma-Hock et al. (cdc.gov)
  • These results may be useful for risk assessment studies since ground water is a common source of drinking water and subsequently connected to the interest of public health. (waterpathogens.org)
  • All of the studies with quantitative data are consistent with a supralinear dose-response relationship. (sjweh.fi)
  • Analysis
  • In 2012, he stepped down from his position as an Associate Editor of Risk Analysis - An International Journal , but continues to serve on the editorial board. (exponent.com)
  • Dr. Moolgavkar was given the Founders' Award by the CIIT Centers for Health Research in 1990, the Distinguished Achievement Award by the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) in 2001 and the Outstanding Service Award by SRA in 2012. (exponent.com)
  • workplace
  • The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH ® ) is a private not-for-profit, nongovernmental corporation whose members are industrial hygienists or other occupational health and safety professionals dedicated to promoting health and safety within the workplace. (acgih.org)
  • bodies
  • Governmental bodies establish public health standards based on statutory and legal frameworks that include definitions and criteria concerning the approach to be used in assessing and managing risk. (acgih.org)
  • Chapter
  • This chapter recounts the history and evolution of human health risk assessment, tracing the development of tools and models that made it possible, as well as the factors in society that made it indispensable. (cdc.gov)
  • adverse
  • The statistical power necessary to detect an adverse health effect from the low doses encountered in occupational settings requires a large number of exposed workers and sufficiently long follow-up to account for the latency periods. (nap.edu)
  • The determination of individual Target Hazard Quotients (THQs) in fish tissue indicated safe levels for the local people, but there is a possible risk in terms of total THQ because the highest THQ value of As suggests that they may experience a certain degree of adverse health effect. (ac.ir)
  • Among
  • Among both males and females, moderate alcohol consumption did not increase the risk of hyperuricemia. (mdpi.com)
  • Among expected high-risk industries, elevated risks were observed among workers in quarries/sand pits and construction industries for both sexes, and among males in metal mines, iron foundries, non-metallic mineral products industries and transportation industries. (bmj.com)
