The document is prepared as a companion to the 2012 update of the enHealth guidance document Environmental health risk assessment: Guidelines for assessing human healthrisks from environmental hazards. The publication of both documents has been funded by the enHealth Council through a contract with the Australian Centre for Human Health Risk Assessment (ACHHRA) at Monash University.
The Australian exposure factor guidance handbook (2012) is intended to provide risk assessors with sets of tabulated dataon human factors that may be used as inputs to the exposure assessment component of an environmental healthrisk assessment. The handbook should be read in conjunction with Chapter 4 of the main enHealth guidance document.
