Step 2.1 Estimating Exposure Doses

bullet An Inhalation Dose

No dose calculation is needed for an inhalation dose.


Dermal contact dose
Dose calculation is rarely needed for dermal contact, but health assessors may calculate dermal contact doses if site-specific conditions warrant or if community concerns are involved.

From the following list of site-specific circumstances, determine which two that you consider would not require an estimate for a dermal contact dose.

For an adult who picks up a lead pipe

For an adult who occasionally touches soil that contains arsenic

For a baby who has been bathed daily in well water found to contain a pesticide
