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
