Risk Assessment Program

SNC-Lavalin Inc.


The use of risk assessment as a remedial approach is an integral part of federal and provincial/territorial best management practice across all Canadian jurisdictions. 

Environmental standards/guidelines are derived by regulatory agencies using generic assumptions to protect sensitive human and ecological populations that may not be present on specific sites. Remediation to these standards/guidelines is not always required to protect human health and the environment. In addition, removing contamination may be impractical due to physical, technological or socio-economic constraints, and can sometimes do more harm than good. The benefits of risk-based remediation include longterm liability management, and reduced operational and site closure costs. 

A clear understanding of risk assessment can provide all stakeholders with clear and practical alternatives to the traditional remediation strategies that are becoming increasingly expensive and unsustainable.
