Most people spend most of their time indoors, and the poor nquality of the indoor environment is a strong determinant of a variety of health problems.
The principal way of preventing adverse health effects is to eliminate exposure to hazardous factors.
But first, standardized methods of assessing exposure are necessary to assess the risk to health and to select optimal risk management actions.
This book aims to facilitate the implementation of exposure assessment methods in public health practice.
The expertise necessary for applying exposure assessment methods can be found in a number of disciplines : chemistry, toxicology, physiology, epidemiology and ventilation or building design engineering.
All these disciplines have contributed to this publication, which is intended to supplement the extensive textbooks on indoor air quality, its effects on health and the techniques available to optimize indoor air quality.
It identifies the entire scope of activities necessary for exposure assessment.
