Risk Assessment (Human Health & Environment)

To quantify potential human health and environmental risks associated with contaminated sites & ensure the site is safe for proposed and existing uses.

Business Challenge

Contaminated and potentially contaminated land can have major economic, legal, social and planning implications for the community. Contamination to soil and groundwater can limit land use potential or increase costs for developers, property owners and local authorities. The investigation and clean-up of site contamination is important to protect the environment, human health and assets. Human Health and Environmental Risk Assessment provides a systematic approach for characterising the nature and extent of potential human health and environmental risks, as a result of exposure to land and/or groundwater contamination issues. The last two decades have seen increasing demands for available land and reforms to the waste management hierarchy that require the implementation of sustainable and practical options for the assessment, clean-up, remediation, long-term management and disposal of material from contaminated sites. Hence, the use of risk assessment as a tool in the decision making process has become essential to policymakers, regulators, property owners and developers alike, in order to seek alternative methods for managing and cleaning up contaminated sites.
