Risk Assessment of Chemicals: An Introduction1489
At last - a second edition of this hugely important text that reflects the progress and experience gained in the last decade and aims at providing background and training material for a new generation of risk assessors. The authors offer an introduction to risk assessment of chemicals as well as basic background information on sources, emissions, distribution and fate processes for the estimation of exposure of plant and animal species in the environment and humans exposed via the environment, consumer products, and at the workplace. The coverage describes the basic principles and methods of risk assessment within their legislative frameworks (EU, USA, Japan and Canada).

From the reviews of the second edition: "This is the second edition of a book published in 1995 and is laid out in a user friendly format. ... useful to those who were relatively new to chemical risk assessment. ... the risk management process is introduced in a clear manner, explaining the role that science has to play, and gives consideration to communication of risk to stakeholders. ... is intended to be used by those involved in the risk assessment of chemicals as well as students in technology, health and environmental sciences." (Julian Roberts, British Toxicology Society Newsletter, Summer, 2008) "A relatively comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to the science and art of assessing risks of chemicals. The advancement of scientific knowledge in the field of biology and toxicology has been massive ... and the authors have done a very good job of trying to capture that knowledge expansion and still present it at an introductory level. ... Overall, I was very impressed with this textbook on risk assessment of chemicals. The authors clearly reflected their many years of experience in the field." (Robert D. Stenner, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Vol. 15, 2008) "An edited compilation of chapters with a total of 37 authors, but the editors have done a good job of ensuring that the tone and level of detail is consistent. ... Finally, the relatively large number of figures, tables, and text boxes make the book inviting. This book is particularly useful with respect to the problem of inadequate data. ... I believe that anyone who is involved in human health or ecological risk assessment of industrial chemicals would benefit from this book." (Glenn Suter, Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management, Vol. 4 (3), 2008) "Risk Assessment of Chemicals: An Introduction will be useful to anyone involved with, or interested in, risk assessment and management of chemicals. ... This book provides an excellent resource to better understand and achieve international approaches to the identification, assessment, and the management of chemical hazards. ... This book will be a great resource for risk assessors, risk managers, policymakers, and educators. It would be highly effective for teachers of risk assessment; students should find its content to be both exciting and practical." (Barry L. Johnson, International Journal of Human and Ecological Risk Assessment, February, 2009)
