First Speaker: Vrushali Gandhi, Virginia DEQ Topic: Virginia Unified Risk Assessment Model (VURAM) Unleashed Summary: The Virginia Unified Risk Assessment Model (VURAM) is a risk assessment tool developed and maintained by VA DEQ to conduct quantitative human health risk assessments. This presentation will include a demo of the software and how to interpret the results. We will further discuss how its application could be useful for regulators, consultants and various other stakeholders. Second Speaker: Diana Marquez, Project Manager with Burns & McDonnell Topic: Risk Assessment and Decision-Making in Corrective Action Summary: Risk management is one of the most challenging parts of a corrective action project. Effective risk management requires understanding a variety of considerations including the technical complexities of a site, risk drivers, and stakeholder concerns. In this presentation, we will discuss 1) Current frequently-used approaches to risk management; 2) Strengths and weaknesses of the frequently-used approaches; and 3) Alternative ways of approaching risk management to achieve the same goals.
