Module 4 - SLP

Uses and Limitations of Risk Assessment

For your session-long project, you were to develop an environmental health risk management plan for a project type of your choice. The plan will be divided into five parts. The framework for the risk management plan is as follows:

  1. Identifying the project and defining the problem. This step includes identifying the specific chemical and the situation that may cause an adverse impact on human health or the ecosystem. (Module 1)

  2. Identifying the Stakeholders. (Module 2)

  3. Placing the problem in the proper context. (Module 3)

  4. Examining options for addressing the risks. (Module 4)

  5. Making a decision about which option to implement. (Module 5)

Module 4 Assignment

For this SLP, write a 3-5+ page paper in which you:

  1. Identify and examine risk management options for the project, and

  2. Describe how project impacts are controlled.

Examples of options include regulatory and non-regulatory approaches to reducing risk such as recycling, taxing industries on the basis of pollution, limiting pollutant emissions, and eliminating the use of hazardous materials. Try to consider all reasonable alternatives including the alternative of no project.

Be sure to justify your opinions with evidence from the literature. Your answer should be supported by references and the references should be cited in the body of your discussion as well as in a reference list.

Session Long Project Assignment Expectations

Length: The completed SLP should be approximately 25 pages, double spaced. (Plus/minus 3 pages). Each module SLP should be approximately 3-5 pages or approximately 600 to 1200 words.

References: At least three references should be included from academic sources (e.g. peer-reviewed journal articles). Required readings are included. Quoted material should not exceed 10% of the total paper (since the focus of these assignments is critical thinking). Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it MUST be enclosed in quotes. The references should be cited within the text and also listed at the end of the assignment in the References section (preferably in APA format).

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to question

Format: APA format is recommended (but not required) for this assignment. See Syllabus page for more information on APA format.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted, assignments are expected to adhere to standards guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity.

  • Relevance (e.g. all content is connected to the question)
  • Precision (e.g. specific question is addressed. Statements, facts, and statistics are specific and accurate).
  • Depth of discussion (e.g. present and integrate points that lead to deeper issues)
  • Breadth (e.g. multiple perspectives and references, multiple issues/factors considered)
  • Evidence (e.g. points are well-supported with facts, statistics and references)
  • Logic (e.g. presented discussion makes sense, conclusions are logically supported by premises, statements, or factual information)
  • Clarity (e.g. writing is concise, understandable, and contains sufficient detail or examples)
