CSARM Module E: Risk-based Site Assessment (SCI19013)


<p>The goal of contaminated land management and site auditing is to ensure the protection of human health and the environment. The risk assessment approach is integral to this process and is now also increasingly used for the development of new guidelines for water, sediment and soil.</p> <p>This module examines the application of human health and ecological risk assessment methods in site assessment, site evaluation, remediation and management. It considers the application of major guidelines for ecological media quality in use in NSW and elsewhere in Australia, and addresses the methodology of human health risk assessment as the integral part of contaminated site assessment and management.</p> <p><h4><b>Who Will Benefit?</b><br></h4></p> <p>This program is particularly useful for:</p> <ul><li>Environmental scientists, engineers, managers, consultants <li>Professionals aspiring to become contaminated site consultant or a site auditor as part of career development <li>Environmental professionals seeking to change career direction <li>Professionals whose discipline/employment is in an area allied to contaminated site assessment </ul> <p><h4><b>Program</b></h4></p> <ul><li>Principles and application of risk assessment <li>Practical issues in applying risk assessment approach in site assessments <li>Ecological risk assessment with a workshop on EILs <li>Human health risk assessment with a workshop <li>Development and application of quality guidelines for water, soil and sediments <li>A site visit</ul> <p><h4><b>Course outcomes</b></h4></p> <p>On completion of the module, the participants will gain an understanding of:</p> <ul><li>The human health and ecological risk assessment approach as applied to contaminated sites investigations; <li>The risk-based environmental guidelines for water, soil and sediment quality; <li>The current NEPM guidelines in soil quality and how to apply them <li>The essential information for human health risk assessment and how to apply it; <li>The practical aspects of dealing with risk assessment requirements.</ul> <p><h4><b>Presenters</b><br> </h4></p> <p>The teaching team will include: regulator from NSW EPA, environmental lawyer, academic specialist, contaminated site auditors and other professionals in allied disciplines.</p> <p><h4><b>Duration of the module</b><Br> </h4></p> <p>The sessions will start at 9 am on Wednesday, and 8.30 am on Thursday and Friday.
