GEI offers a broad range of services to successfully evaluate, interpret, and communicate infrastructure, environmental and ecological risks associated with chemical and physical stressors.
Our approach to human health risk assessment is designed not only to meet the specific needs of a particular site or problem, but also to provide the most cost-effective means of assessing potential health problems by quickly focusing on and limiting the scope of field investigations to the driving issues. We have pioneered advances in quantitative risk assessment to more realistically predict chemical exposure and risks. GEI has developed:
GEI conducts safety investigations and risk assessments to improve the safety of dams, bridges, and other infrastructure elements. For example, we conduct damage assessment (IDA) to identify spillway design flood requirements for new, gated spillway structures. We conduct Vulnerability Assessments to determine the safety of water supply sources.
Interest in ecological risk assessment has increased, in part from the need to make critical environmental decisions in the face of limited financial resources. However, ecological risk assessments are not effective unless ecologists can clearly define the ecological problem, properly collect and analyze data to address the problem, and synthesize and summarize the results of the risk assessment in a manner such that ecological consequences of an action are incorporated into the decision-making process. Ecological risk assessment only partially fulfills its objective if it does not constructively communicate options and consequences to the public, policy analysts, and decision makers. GEI offers a complete range of services to successfully evaluate, interpret, and communicate ecological risks associated with chemical and physical stressors.
