4.2. The elements to identify risks

4.2.1. Considering the proposed project elements

4.2.2. Use the proponent's knowledge and experience

4.2.3. Consider the feedback from stakeholder consultation

4.2.4. Consider the preliminary risks identified in TOR.

4.3. Aspects of the environment (important to determine the consequences level)

4.3.1. Groundwater

4.3.2. Surface water

4.3.3. Ecology

4.3.4. Social

5. 1. Introduction

5.1. Risk management in business is to ensure that on a day-to-day basis, both strategic and operational decisions are risk-based.

5.2. Consist of methodology and the tools to identify both opportunities and threats.

5.3. Requirements of the system

5.3.1. Hazard identification

5.3.2. Risk assessment

5.3.3. Risk recording processes

5.4. Only focus on the risk assessment for environmental and social risk that was undertaken for the project.

5.5. Steps endorsed by AS/NZS management system standard

5.5.1. Establishment of context

5.5.2. Risk identification

5.5.3. Risk analysis

5.5.4. Risk evaluation

5.5.5. Risk treatment

5.5.6. Monitoring and review

5.5.7. Communication and consultation

5.6. Key features and outcomes of the risk management

5.6.1. Part of decision making

5.6.2. An integral part of the proponent's organizational process

5.6.3. Based on the best available information

5.6.4. Address uncertainty

5.6.5. Takes into account human, cultural and environment aspects

5.6.6. Transparent and inclusive

5.6.7. Tailored, dynamic, and responsive to change

5.6.8. Facilitate continual improvement

5.6.9. Creates and protect the value both for the proponent and key stakeholder

6. 2. Establishment of Context

6.1. environmental setting

6.1.1. overview of setting

6.1.1.1. Project description

6.1.2. Terrestrial ecology

6.1.3. Aquatic ecology

6.1.4. Groundwater

6.1.5. Surface water

6.1.6. Social environment

6.1.6.1. Air quality

6.1.6.2. Acoustic (noise) Environment

6.1.6.3. Visual Amenity

6.1.6.4. Socio-economics

6.1.6.5. Cultural heritage

6.2. project elements

6.2.1. Unconstrained version

6.2.1.1. assumed extraction of ore within Eastern Leases unconstrained by env issue

6.2.1.2. formed the basis of initial assessment of unmitigated env. risk

6.2.1.2.1. allowed significant risk to be identified early in project planning process

6.2.1.3. Project could be modified to eliminate risk or reduce risk to acceptable levels

6.2.2. Modified version

6.2.2.1. Once env. and sosial risk were understood, integrated and multi-dispilinary approach was adopted

6.2.2.2. eliminate or limit risk

6.2.2.3. guided by risk assessment

6.2.2.3.1. input from carious specialist area

6.2.2.4. facilitated by proponent through multi-criteria/risk assessment workshop.

7. Introduction

7.1. Describe the assessment of environmental and social risks that was undertaken for the project.

7.2. Describes the risk assessment methodology and presents the result of the assessment

7.3. The objective of this risk assessment process is to ensure that significant risks are identified and evaluated in order to ensure an appropriate level of risk treatment is applied to mitigate such risks.

8. Extra

8.1. This document (section 4, environmental risk assessment) is one of the sections in Draft Environmental Impact Statement, Eastern Leases Project by Hansen Bailey.

8.2. Issues

8.2.1. 1. Is the document specifically for mining project?

8.2.1.1. 2. Why is it written environmental management plan on page 4-1 if this document is environmental risk assessment document?

8.2.2. 3. Does both country Australia and New Zealand using this same standard? The AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009.

8.3. Thoughts and Facts

8.3.1. Hansen Bailey is an environmental consultant

8.3.2. Cane toads are readily moved over long distances by people, the main method of arrival was road transport.

8.3.3. Cane toads are a threat to biodiversity because they are poisonous, predatory, adaptive and competitive.

8.3.4. The annual audits of quarantine procedure is to confirm the adequacy of quarantine measures and continual improvement.

8.3.5. The risk assessment matrix is the same matrix used during EMS class last semester.

9. Methodology

10. Environmental Risk Assessment

10.1. Risk ratings is provided for both activity with and without mitigation to understand the effect of mitigation measures.

10.2. The risks are significantly reduced by the application of mitigation measures.

10.3. Only one risk remain high even after mitigation which is introduction of Cane Toad to Groote Eylandt due to the transport of materials and personnel.

10.4. Formal quarantine audits conducted by trained and experienced quarantine officers as an additional mitigation.

10.5. Elimination of final voids in mine plan is the key mitigation.
