This Snack & Learn Webinar is for project managers and practitioners in the Earth and Environment, Buildings and Infrastructure and ERI groups who are supporting on infrastructure projects including built environments, mining, and oil & gas sectors. Join us for an overview of how climate change is impacting our clients and how human and ecological risk assessments can be incorporated into Physical Risk Assessments.
Human and environmental risk assessments are endorsed by federal and provincial regulatory agencies across Canada. There are many types of risk assessments and as such, this webinar will focus on environmental risk assessment which is a scientific process to evaluate chemical, environmental and radionuclide stressors following a widely used framework to inform decisions whether the environmental condition poses health risks to human and environment. This webinar provides an overview of how the risk assessment framework can be used to assess the impact of climate change on human and environmental health and how the findings can be used to inform proposed infrastructure or remediation projects. The findings can also be used to develop mitigation measures that can be implemented to increase resilience and adapt to the changing climate.
