Exposure information is crucial in human health risk assessment to identifying and estimating the risk to a given population following exposure to chemical, physical or psychosocial agents. The risk assessment process includes hazard assessment of the agent(s), exposure assessment of the population(s) and risk characterization integrating these aspects, as well as careful consideration of all uncertainty and variability involved.
