Content

This unit provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify and address risks to healthy environments. Through case studies of urban, industrial, agricultural and/or natural environments at risk, students will assess the role of techniques such as indices of environmental health, epidemiology, toxicology and statistics and evaluate environmental and health concerns. They will also study the limitations associated with the various risk assessment techniques; approaches to risk management through policy, legislation, planning and management; risk management principles and planning; appropriate risk avoidance and minimisation; and integration of risk management with environmental management principles.
