  1. LQM speak at “Asbestos the truth”

    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.

    For video clips of all the speakers go to http://www.asbestosthetruth.com/seminar-clips-2013/ or see our presentation below:

    (Spot the presenter who was taking part in ‘Movember’ at the time.  Don’t worry he won’t be doing it again – I promise!)
