    Sammanfattning : In environmental impact assessment (EIA), accident risk should be considered as one impact. However, few studies have compared assessed risk levels with documented accidents. There is thus a need for assessing accuracy of risk assessment methodologies. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Assessment and design of industrial manual handling to reduce physical ergonomics hazards : – use and development of assessment tools

    Sammanfattning : Despite efforts of reducing harmful physical ergonomics exposures related to manual handling, the occurrence of heavy or repetitive manual handling, and non-neutral postures is high in many occupational sectors. To reduce these exposures, interventions and job design strategies can utilize risk assessment. LÄS MER

  3. 3. A step forward in using QSARs for regulatory hazard and exposure assessment of chemicals

    Författare :Aleksandra Rybacka; Patrik Andersson; Christina Rudén; Anna Linusson; Uko Maran; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : According to the REACH regulation chemicals produced or imported to the European Union need to be assessed to manage the risk of potential hazard to human health and the environment. An increasing number of chemicals in commerce prompts the need for utilizing faster and cheaper alternative methods for this assessment, such as quantitative structure-activity or property relationships (QSARs or QSPRs).

  4. 4. Environmental and health hazards of chemicals in plastic polymers and products

    Författare :Delilah Lithner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :plastics; plastic products; plastic polymers; consumer products; environmental hazards; environment; health hazards; human health; hazard ranking; hazard assessment; chemical ranking; hazard identification; hazard classifications; hazardous chemicals; hazardous substances; toxic substances; monomers; polymers; toxicity; acute toxicity; toxicity tests; Daphnia magna; Toxicity Identification Evaluation; TIE; leaching; leachates; product leachates; leaching tests; plastic materials; plastic;

    Sammanfattning : Plastics are extremely diverse in terms of chemical composition, properties and possible applications, and are widely distributed in the society and the environment. In the last 15 years the global annual production has doubled, reaching 245 million tons in 2008. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Transparency within REACH? : Regulatory risk assessment of industrial chemicals

    Författare :Ellen Ingre-Khans; Christina Rudén; Marlene Ågerstrand; Anna Beronius; Jeanne Duus Johansen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; REACH; chemicals legislation; risk assessment; hazard assessment; transparency; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Chemicals provide us with many benefits but can also have adverse effects on human health and the environment. Concerns that previous European legislations were not providing adequate protection from chemical risks resulted in a new chemicals legislation – REACH – in 2007. LÄS MER
