Risk Assessment

Risk Tools and Databases

[UPDATE] In October 2017, we updated these pages to include dynamic lists of various risk assessment resources pulled from the EPA ExpoBox (human health exposure assessments) and EPA EcoBox (ecological risk assessment) web sites.  These are the most current set of resources, updated biannually, and also include link(s) to the relevant ExpoBox and EcoBox supporting pages which provide additional details about using these resources. Learn more about these applications from the basic information on ExpoBox and the basic information on EcoBox web sites.

EPA has developed help for assessing and managing environmental risks, including guidance documents and tools ( the models and databases), used in our own risk assessments. In some cases, these resources are broad enough to be relevant across all statutes that EPA administers while in other cases, they are more applicable to specific EPA programs. The lists below are separated by human health and ecological risk assessment and then by databases, models and other tools.
