About this book

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.
