The Alberta Oil Sands Community Exposure and Health Effects Assessment Program: methods report

Description

The Alberta Oil Sands Community Exposure and Health Effects Assessment Program was designed to assess exposure and associated health effects by direct measurement of personal exposure, direct measurement of biomarkers, and daily logs of a participant's activities. The study was modeled after the Total Exposure Assessment Method (TEAM) approach developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The TEAM approach is based on four fundamental characteristics: direct measurement of all routes of exposure (breathing, ingestion, and skin contact), direct measurement of biomarkers, daily logs of a participant’s activities, and a representative probability sample.
