The environmental risks assessment with guidelines


An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) uses scientific methods to identify and assess the potential threat to the environment. By law, the obligation to carry out environmental assessments is laid down in the Act on the Environmental Impact Assessment.



This article informs about the following topics:


1. The significance of an environmental risk assessment


2. 6 steps of an environmental risk analysis


3. A digital application for an environmental risk assessment



The importance of a constant pattern environmental impact assessment


However, the most important sources of water are the mining, manufacturing and construction industries, air and soil pollution. Among the most important aspects contributing to this are the improper disposal of chemicals, the intensive use of air-polluting equipment and machinery, the improper handling of asbestos, the contamination of soil by hazardous substances and industrial noise.


Employers should conduct thorough risk assessments and inspections to develop a good environmental management system (EMS) and ensure that their company operates in such a way that it causes as little damage to the environment as possible.



6 steps of an environmental risk analysis


An environmental risk assessment guide can be used by risk managers and policy makers to identify and document at an early stage all potential environmental dangers caused by a company and its employees.


The following 6 steps will help you to carry out an environmental impact assessment according to efficient patterns:


  1. Define the problem

    First of all risk managers define the scope of an environmental impact assessment by means of guidelines by determining what needs to be protected against damage. Here, a site-specific analysis is used to determine where the challenge lies in the environment.


  2. Risks characterization

    In this step, risk managers examine the potential environmental dangers at the workplace.


  3. Exposure characterization

    This step is concerned with deciding what and who is at risk


  4. Risk characterization
  5. Risk characterization combines the results of danger and exposure characterization to perform a risk assessment.


  6. Documentation
  7. In this step, the evaluation results are recorded and the precautionary measures are implemented.


  8. A digital application for an environmental risk assessment


    Carrying out an environmental risk assessment with guidance can be a cumbersome process, requiring extensive documentation and the collection of evidence on site. Digital technology and modern mobile applications can help here.
