Summary

All corporations must perform evaluations to define the risks to public health and the environment. Your corporation can get the edge by evaluating risk with a process that begins with the "end-in-mind" for the property and that concludes with a cogently communicated argument that addresses the issues. With this in mind, Risk-Based Analysis for Environmental Managers provides scientific strategies and techniques for reducing corporate environment liabilities.

This practical guide provides a new, integrated perspective on the role of risk assessment in managing contaminated properties. It describes how to manage the assessment to impact decision making. The book provides you with a crisp, historical review and background development and an integrated technique called Risk-Based Analysis. This technique includes:
  • A problem formulation tool
  • Situation analysis techniques
  • Risk assessment management
  • Risk management option analysis
  • Guidance on the development of risk arguments and their communication

    Working with a foundation of knowledge and strength will enable you to build a creative, value-added position that minimizes the risk potential through cost-effective techniques and returns the impaired property to valuable use. Risk-Based Analysis will help you obtain this goal, and Risk-Based Analysis for Environmental Managers give you the tools you need to use Risk-Based Analysis to its full potential.
