LQM’s Richard Ogden presented a summary on assessing and managing the risks from asbestos in soil at the 4th annual “Asbestos the Truth” conference in Manchester in November 2013; an event mainly attended by the mainstream asbestos industry. It was a great opportunity to introduce them to the complexities of contaminated land and the need for the two communities to work together in managing asbestos-containing soils. The presentation also promoted the recently published Ciria guidance for which LQM are lead authors.
