Abstract:
Explains how to evaluate and apply environmental health and hazard risk assessment calculations in a variety of real-life settings. Using examples and case studies, the book helps readers develop both a theoretical understanding and a working knowledge of the principles of health, safety, and accident management. 

The book takes a pragmatic approach to risk assessment, identifying problems and outlining solutions. Organized into four parts, the text:
- Presents an overview of the history of environmental health and hazard problems, legal considerations, and emergency planning and response
- Tackles the broad subject of health risk assessment, discussing toxicology, exposure, and health risk characterization
- Examines hazard risk assessment in significant detail—from problem identification, probability, consequence, and characterization of hazards/accidents to the fundamentals of applicable statistics theory
- Uses case studies to demonstrates the applications and calculations of risk analysis for real systems.
