A number of resources have been identified and reviewed as to their suitability for use in New Zealand. 

  • We have provided a glossary of common terms used in risk assessment.

  • There is also a FAQ page of commonly asked questions that relate to undertaking a risk assessment.

  • There are also some useful resources for doing a Tier 1 risk assessment.

  • A checklist is available for characterising a site.

Most of the resources available on this website relate to Tier 2 and Tier 3 advanced risk assessment.
