Risk Assessment is the process of identifying hazards, estimating the associated risks and considering the level of acceptable risk to the community. Bio Diverse Solutions have undertaken Environmental Risk Assessment and Visitor Risk Assessment for Government and Local Government Agencies.
Environmental Risk Assessment – This process identifies hazards which are potentially damaging to ecological function and environmental landscapes. Such examples include illegal activities (dumping of cars, release of toxicants etc)on reserves which lead to pollution or harm to animals. Assessment is undertaken of the hazards and level of acceptable risk. Maintenance schedules are prepared and large broad scale pollution is identified. Bio Diverse provide costings and quotes for remediation.
Visitor Risk Assessment – Visitor Risk Assessment (VRA) and subsequent Management of Visitor Risks (VRM), is a systemic process of identification and control of a broad range of risks which have the potential to lead to the injury of visitors to land or property. Utilising the matrix formulated by the DEC this systematic approach can assist in getting much needed funds to recreational sites which previously have not been assessed for capital works. Maintenance schedules and programs are developed for ongoing improvement of facilities.
