Modeling Software for EHS Professionals

BREEZE Risk Analyst is an add-in for Esri ArcGIS (sold separately, free version available) designed to perform human health risk assessment modeling. It is a highly flexible and expandable GIS-based analysis platform for conducting multi-pathway human health risk assessments. Risk Analyst seamlessly combines all the necessary tools, databases, GIS functionality, and fate and transport and exposure modeling equations into an affordable and easy to use software application.

BREEZE Risk Analyst’s highly flexible and modular design may be used for preparing human health risk assessments for both regulatory and non-regulatory requirements. The system is designed to provide a platform upon which to support the evolving requirements and environmental challenges of many of today’s most important regulatory and non-regulatory applications, including:

  • Air toxics risk assessments (ATRA)
  • Environmental impact statements (EIS)
  • Air monitoring health impact analysis
  • HHRAP-RCRA hazardous waste combustion permitting 
  • Community-based cumulative risk assessment programs
  • Ecological risk assessments
  • Toxic tort and odor/nuisance litigation
  • Air toxics permitting
  • Air toxics risk assessment library methodologies
  • Cumulative risk
  • Environmental justice
  • Hot spots guidelines
  • Residual risk

Key Features
  • Includes the U.S. EPA Human Health Risk Assessment Protocol (HHRAP), among many other risk modules
  • Incorporates advanced error logging and numeric validation reporting
  • Contains a powerful database of the 204 HHRAP Companion Database chemicals
  • Enables users to add or import new chemicals to the database and modify existing chemicals
  • Includes a robust toolbox of results analysis and mapping features
  • Provides detailed parameter and equation descriptions
  • Enables users to import emission inventories such as the U.S. EPA Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) and the U.S. EPA National Emission Inventory (NEI)
Product Tour

BREEZE Risk Analyst provides the framework for conducting risk assessment modeling for both regulatory and non-regulatory applications. Risk modeling and analysis capabilities can be expanded with the risk modules designed to implement a specific risk assessment methodology or regulatory program (e.g., HHRAP, TRIM, HARP). Users also inherit the full functionality available in Esri ArcView, including visualizing, managing, creating, and analyzing geographic data. With all of these features and capabilities, BREEZE Risk Analyst provides a cost effective and customizable solution to meet your current and future modeling needs.
