Due to the increased usage, and availability of a variety of pesticides and herbicides, concerns have been raised regarding the human health and environmental impact of these compounds. The Cardno ChemRisk team can provide our support in conducting a human health or environmental risk assessment following the use of the product, provide regulatory support and compliance, and provide a state of the art literature review and assessment.

Project Example: Herbicide Safety Evaluation

Project Overview: Cardno ChemRisk was contacted to provide a comprehensive carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic risk evaluation of a commonly used herbicide.

Our Approach: We provided a systematic approach to determining the human health risks of the herbicide by- 1) evaluating the strength of the epidemiological evidence for each suspect disease endpoint (pooled meta-risk estimates), and 2) determining whether the in vivo and in vitro data provide mechanistic support for any epidemiological disease endpoint.

Our Value: We were able provide our client a reliable and comprehensive state-of-the-art human health risk evaluation of the herbicide.
