Risk assessment characterize the nature and magnitude of health risks to humans (e.g., residents, workers, recreational visitors) and ecological receptors (e.g., birds, fish, wildlife) from chemical contaminants and other stressors, that may be present in the environment. Risk managers use this information to help them decide how to protect humans and the environment from stressors or contaminants. Risk assessment is, to the highest extent possible, a scientific process. In general terms, risk depends on the following factors:

1) Concentration of a chemical in an environmental medium (e.g., soil, water, air),

2) Contact (exposure) frequency of a person or ecological receptor with the contaminated environmental medium, and

3) The inherent toxicity of the chemical.

What is risk assessment?

EPA uses risk assessment to characterize the nature and magnitude of health risks to humans (e.g., residents, workers, recreational visitors) and ecological receptors (e.g., birds, fish, wildlife) from chemical contaminants and other stressors, that may be present in the environment. Risk managers use this information to help them decide how to protect humans and the environment from stressors or contaminants. [...]

Risk assessment is, to the highest extent possible, a scientific process. In general terms, risk depends on the following factors:

• How much of a chemical is present in an environmental medium (e.g., soil, water, air),

• How much contact (exposure) a person or ecological receptor has with the contaminated environmental medium, and

• The inherent toxicity of the chemical.

Anmerkungen

Fascinating! Though the source seems to be named somewhere above on this page, nothing has been marked as a citation. Indeed, the wording is not to be found in the referenced document, but - mostly identical - on the official web-page of the US EPA. Thus this fragment is not to be considered as a "pawn sacrifice"
