Environmental Risk Management

01.06.2024 - 31.12.2024

Course description

The student is able to:

  • define environmental risk management compliance requirements, best practices and apply those
  • define environmental threats and analyse their impact to organisations’ operations
  • assess and manage environmental risks
  • create environmental risk management procedures and guidelines

The course consists of an orientation and five modules on different subject areas. Modules 1-4 consist of an online lecture, review questions, an assignment and a midterm exam. In the last module, a final task that brings together the subject areas is prepared.

Each module has tasks and at the end there is a short exam, which, if passed, allows you to move on to the next module. At the end of the course, there is still a final assignment that gathers all subject areas.

The course modules are

  • Key regulation
  • Environmental management and risk management
  • Sustainable development
  • Chemical safety and emissions


Before enrolling to this study unit, you should have adequate competence of safety, security and risk management, which you can acquire for example by completing study unit HT00BN79 Basics of Corporate Safety, Security and Risk Management (10 cr) or TO00BS57 Basic Theory of Corporate Safety, Security and Risk Management (5 cr) at Open University of Applied Sciences/via CampusOnline.

Assessment criteria

The grade for the course is formed based on intermediate exams. The course also includes other tasks that do not affect the grade, but they must be completed in order to progress in the course.

Each intermediate exam is evaluated according to the evaluation table below, i.e. to pass the exam, you must get at least 40% of the answers correct. In the overall grade, the intermediate exams are taken into account with equal weights.

Each exam can be attempted three times, of which the highest score remains valid. The retakes of the failed performance according to the degree regulations are thus part of the implementation.

Grading scale 5 < 94% – 90% 4 < 90% – 75% 3 < 75% – 60% 2 < 60% – 50% 1 < 50% – 40% 0 < 40% – 0%

Course way of working and time table

The course is completed according to the student’s own schedule between 1.6.2024 and 31.12.2024.

The course must be completed and the final assignment returned by December 31. by 23:59 to pass the course. Exceptionally, you do not need to confirm your place in the course.

During the summer holiday in July and during the New Year holidays, no assessments are recorded. Completed credit requests made by the end of the semester are recorded for the past semester, those made by 31.12. for the autumn semester, and those made by 31.7. for the spring semester.

However, if you are not going to complete the study, inform the teacher in charge.
