Exposure Risk Assessment
Waterborne Pathogen Assessment | Exposure Risk Assessment
The control of exposure of individuals to waterborne pathogens is a fundamental ‘duty of care’ obligation. It is hence critical to understand and evaluate the likely exposures of individuals to not only drinking / potable water but also to other water bodies including on-site process water.
Our Team of specialists are not only able to design and undertake the semi-qualitative microbial risk assessments required to determine and quantify where possible the microbial health risk that various cohorts of personnel are exposed during site operations, but also able to provide a clear and practical insight into what this means to current operations and any potential changes.
Potential exposures typically include incidental and accidental ingestion, inhalation or dermal exposure to the water source of concern. The key Exposure Risk Assessment Steps are outlined in the image below.
