Health & Ecological Risk Assessments
Detailed risk assessments provide enormous advantages for owners of sites with contamination. They can be used to ensure that the remediation goals established for the site properly account for the risks present, and ensure that maximum remedial benefit is achieved for minimum expenditure.
WHAT WILL TRACE DO FOR YOU?
Understand the project objectives, site configuration, and potential receptors
Evaluate the magnitude and extent of site contamination present
Assess and quantify the risk to human health and the environment
Calculate Site-Specific Target Levels (SSTLs) for remediation, where unacceptable risks are determined to be present
Ensure SSTLs best consider the distribution of risk across various contaminants of potential concern, and balance this with what is achievable in the real world
Provide a solution that minimises the remediation necessary for the site-specific risks quantified, avoiding unnecessary expenditure and over-remediation
