Course Description

This is an annual meeting of BC’s contaminated sites’ risk assessment community – including risk assessors and those that work with risk assessors. We’ve assembled a broad range of speakers and topics with something for everyone - get the latest on risk assessment science and policy.

The use of risk assessment continues to expand, both provincially and federally – including for applications outside of contaminated sites. We see the role of risk assessment evolving into supporting increasingly sustainable and green site remediation – so this is a focus of 2019 workshop.
