Fundamentals in Risk Assessment – Topic 1: Ecological Risk Assessment (May 2 & 4)
May 2, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - May 4, 2017 @ 9:00 AM UTC-8
How many times have you wrestled with sites that have contamination which exceed the numerical standards and require cost effective risk-based remediation? The scientific principles of contaminated site risk assessment are simple, yet their successful implementation is often elusive; navigating the deep waters of regulatory guidance can be daunting. Learn to identify site investigation data gaps, conduct a problem formulation, and take a conceptual exposure model through quantitative steps of human health and ecological risk assessment.
Find out how risk assessment findings are used to support effective risk-based remediation solutions.
Following areas will be covered:
- Development of conceptual exposure models for ecological receptors
- Estimation of contaminant exposures by ecological receptors
- Determination of ecological toxicity reference values
- Characterization of ecological risks
- Discussion of uncertainty in ecological risk estimates
Scott Steer (MET, R.P. Bio) is an environmental toxicologist with 16 years’ experience in human health and ecological risk assessment. Scott also serves of the Board of directors of the BC Contaminated Sites Approved Professional (CSAP) Society.
