EPA Data: 3M Wausau Risk Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) Score Over 3,200 Times Higher Than Industry Median


What is RSEI?

According to

“Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) is a screening-level model that analyzes factors that contribute to human health risk. These factors include the amount of chemical released, the degree of toxicity, and the size of the exposed population. RSEI calculates scores to highlight releases that would potentially pose greater risk over a lifetime of exposure. Because of data limitations, RSEI is not a substitute for a site-specific risk assessment.”

What is the RSEI Score?

According to

“RSEI Score – risk-related results combine surrogate dose with toxicity weight and population estimate, producing a unit-less value or score. Risk-related results are not independently meaningful and should only be used comparatively in relation to other model results.”
