Tool summary

Name of the tool
Environmental Manual (Environmental impact/aspect register and risk assessment)

Description of the tool
Designed in the form of a checklist, the Environmental manual is an assessment method with guidelines for assessing the potential environmental impacts of a project. Designed as an internal tool by a construction firm it is used company wide. Completion of the tool occurs prior to commencing work on site to ensure environmental concerns are noted and mitigated. This manual is reviewed regularly to ensure relevance or if site conditions or design change.

The tool requires a ┬┤specific risk rating┬┤ - low, medium and high - to be given to many potential impacts through a tick box format. Not all impacts outlined in the tool will necessarily apply to every project, however those issues that are of relevance to the project can be modified if possible.

Mitigation measures are provided in order for potential impacts to be rectified. Additional information is available in the form of procedures, forms and guidance.
