Establishing the Actual Risks Posed

If a potential risk to either human health or a controlled water (i.e. groundwater or a surface water course) has been identified through previous phases of desk and site based investigations, then the actual level of risk will need to be determined through a site-specific risk assessment.

Risk assessment generally works on the principal of establishing what an acceptable safe level of contamination would be for a particular site, then comparing these ‘targets’ against actual site data. Final agreement upon an acceptable safe level will depend largely on the sensitivity of the site location and its proposed use and will need to be agreed through negotiation with environmental regulators.

Pristine has a wealth of experience when it comes to risk assessment, often in complex situations and it is this knowledge and our pragmatic approach that is essential in ensuring the target levels agreed with regulators provide appropriate protection of the environment and residents but are also practically and commercially reasonable for the development

Pristine prides itself upon its ability to bring agreement and understanding to all parties involved in the risk assessment process.
