Learn proper risk assessment terminology, how to use internationally recognized risk assessment processes, and how to communicate results effectively.
This intermediate-level course includes an overview of fundamental EHS risk assessment concepts and internationally accepted risk assessment terminology.
A Modified Health Risk Rating (HRR) and IH Failure Mode and Effect Analysis methodology were developed for this course to explore exposure assessment priorities and health risk ratings. You will utilize several interactive IH risk assessment tools covering nanomaterials, additive or synergistic effects of multiple chemical exposures, and dermal exposure risk.
Additionally, a real-world case study will be used to demonstrate the alignment of occupational health risks and the Prevention through Design (PtD) risk assessment process.
At the end of this course, you will receive an assignment to select one of the risk assessment techniques covered and demonstrate a successful risk reduction methodology.
Upon completion, students will be able to:
- Discuss fundamental EHS risk assessment concepts.
- Introduce industrial hygiene risk assessment techniques.
- Utilize health risk assessments and prioritization.
- Align occupational health risk alignment with the Prevention through Design (PtD) risk assessment process.
- Apply the IH risk assessment model based on a real-world case study.
Who Will Benefit
This course is ideal for OEHS professionals who are interested in learning to use proper risk assessment terminology and internationally recognized risk assessment processes to develop risk reduction strategies.
This course builds on the prior knowledge gained in the introductory risk assessment course.

John Arthur Lowe, CIH
Principal Technologist, Jacobs
Mr. Lowe is a Principal Technologist with Jacobs. Since 1979, he has practiced as an exposure scientist and environmental toxicologist with experience with assessing and controlling human health hazards throughout the lifecycles of chemical substances in the environment, for commercial, municipal, and Federal clients. Mr. Lowe has led numerous scientific studies for assessing environmental hazards including human health risk assessments, fate, and transport modeling, exposure modeling, and environmental monitoring studies. These have been applied to problems including hazardous waste site remediation, assessment and control of toxic air pollutant emissions, and product stewardship for pesticides and toxic substances. Mr. Lowe specializes in risk assessment and risk management for environmentally recalcitrant chemicals, including chlorinated solvents in soil and groundwater, dioxins and furans (D/Fs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), chlorinated pesticides, coal-tar residuals, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), heavy metals, and arsenic.
