Risk Management and Remediation Training

There are now many risk management and remediation options available for use at contaminated sites. It is important to be aware of these options along with their relative advantages, limitations and technical constraints in order to select the most appropriate options for the management of pollutant linkages

This is one of a series of 5 one-day courses covering the fundamental subject matter relevant to the investigation, assessment and management of land contamination. The courses aim to improve knowledge of the subject matter and the application of this knowledge in the risk-based approach for the assessment and management of land contamination.  The courses in this series cover legislation and conceptual models, site characterisation, human-health risk assessment, remediation and risk management and reviewing 3rd Party reports.  These courses can be taken individually or in combination.

This is an introductory course suitable for new starters, those needing a refresher or for those managing contaminated land staff.

This course is of relevance to :

Regulatory and local authority staff involved with contaminated land issues
Problem holders and developers needing a more in-depth understanding of contaminated land issues
Anyone producing contaminated land reports
Anyone reviewing third party reports

The course will:

• introduce the concept of risk management and the UK legislation associated with wastes that may be generated during risk management;
• provide an overview of the remediation technologies (civil engineering, physical, chemical, biological, thermal, and solidification / stabilization technologies) that are currently available for contaminated soils and groundwater;
• highlight gas mitigation measures;
• compare costs and remediation timescales associated with each remediation technology; and
• demonstrate the options appraisal process described in CLR 11 for the identification of feasible remediation options and the development of a site remediation strategy

There will be a practical session towards the end of the day to practice the skills learned. The practical session will involve the use of data for real contaminated sites to identify and evaluate feasible remediation options.

By the end of the course delegates should be better able to:

• identify feasible remediation options for pollutant linkages;
• evaluate feasible remediation options to identify the most appropriate ones; and
• develop a remediation strategy for a site addressing all pollutant linkages

All delegates will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance which should be retained and used to provide evidence of CPD activity when required by employers or professional bodies
Duration: 1 Day
