EN 549 Environmental Risk Assessment and Management

There is little doubt that the different types of risk assessment - health, safety, and ecological - are playing an increasingly important role in environmental decision-making and risk management. Guided by several examples and case studies, participants in this course learn to understand the basic concepts of environmental hazards and the different types of risk assessment. The student will conduct human health risk assessments and appreciate the wide array of applications, as well as the advantages and limitations of risk assessments; interpret and present the results of risk assessments to provide linkages with risk management; and apply the principles of integrated risk management.
