Abstract

The success of traditional environmental regulatory programs is clear. However, change is necessary in order to address the less obvious and more technically difficult environmental problems which remain. Risk based decision has been gaining support as an effective method of protecting human health and the environment. Risk management is a pragmatic and cost-effective decision-making tool. Risk management can efficiently improve environmental priority setting, encourage redevelopment of Brownfield properties, and maintain environmental protection.
