Seminar on Environmental Risk Assessment

A CSAP-Risk Specialist, will be presenting on the topic of environmental risk assessment at a free CPD event for College of Applied Biology members from 5-7pm on September 12th in the Malaspina Room of the Coast Basion Hotel, Nanaimo. All College members will be eligible to claim 2 CPD points for attendance at the event, which will be followed by a free networking social with wine and appetizers from 7-9pm in the same location.

The seminar will target introductory principles of ecological risk assessment as captured in guidance from BC MOE and the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan (FCSAP) and will include break out exercises. It will cover the ERA framework implemented in BC and Canada and discuss steps within each of the major components of Problem Formulation, Hazard (Toxicity) Assessment, Exposure Assessment, Risk Characterization and  Uncertainty Analysis. It will consider application of ERA under the BC Contaminated Site Regulations (BC CSR) versus application to support major new project approval (ESIA). Topics will include assessment endpoint, measure endpoint, conceptual exposure models, data adequacy and statistics to support exposure modelling, basic exposure modelling, toxicity reference values, interpretation of hazard quotients, the use of alternative lines of evidence, and reporting and checklists for documenting an ERA report.
