Ending a project is not something to take lightly, but there are circumstances where it may become necessary.

Whether physically or otherwise, a project may put stakeholders at risk of harm in one form or another. If this is the case, you may be faced with one of two decisions, proceed and be part of the problem or halt a project and communicate the risks. Your first step will be to notify sponsors that one or more stakeholders could be put at risk. If you have done this and despite your efforts, the sponsor or company chooses to proceed, it becomes necessary to inform them of your intent to leave the project. If the risk to stakeholders is likely and moderate to severe (especially if their safety or health may be compromised) you have a responsibility to formally notify any necessary parties of the potential risks.
