Risk assessment seeks to identify the risks relevant to activities. Such assessment is the basis for further measures to reduce the risks associated with the least cost.Mannvit specializes in multidisciplinary services in the field of environmental risk assessment that ensures our customers less risky and more efficient developments.

Risk assessment is generally divided into three stages:

  • Identify risks, what can go wrong?
  • Risk analysis, hazard analysis, what can happen, what are the chances and what are the consequences?
  • Risk assessment, is risk within limits or not?

Mannvit provides risk assessment for water protection areas, for projects within nature conservation areas and for potential wild fires (vegetation, bush and forest) in summerhouse areas. The assessment goal is to find solutions to reduce the risk or prevent the negative effects of activities or projects.
