The aim of this project is to investigate how the variability and uncertainty of occupational inhalation exposure information may be better incorporated into the European regulatory risk assessment process. In this proposal, we have chosen to focus specifically on inhalation exposure of workers. Our proposed approach addresses the issue of variability and uncertainty in risk assessments by making the most of the available information, whether this is exposure measurements or model predictions. This approach will improve the process of exposure assessment and contribute towards better a characterisation of risk to chemical exposure. LRI Funding: € 149,820
