  1. LQM/CIEH Suitable 4 Use Levels

    Just a quick note to keep you informed about the publication of the CIEH/LQM S4ULs for Human Health Risk Assessment. After a brief issue finding a binding method for such a large publication, the first S4UL publications were shipped from the printers today!

    Deliveries are being sent directly from the printers by courier. Priority will be given to those on the S4UL workshop and webinar in July 2014, then “pre-publication” and “Early Bird” customers. Later this week delivery will pause over the holiday season but will restart on the 5th January 2015. If you are expecting a copy, you might want to notify your post room to make sure it doesn’t get lost!

    Happy Christmas and Seasons Greetings from LQM

  2. New Course Dates

    LQM are pleased to announce our course dates for the 1st quarter of 2015!

    In January, due to popular demand we will be running our “Using CLEA v1.06: a hands on learning experience” course, ideal for anyone wanting to understand how to use the CLEA software to derive generic and site specific assessment criteria.  For examples, for those wanting to reproduce the new LQM/CIEH S4ULs or further develop these values using DQRA.

    Then, in February and March, we will again be running our ever popular series of 5 day courses covering “Introduction and development of the Conceptual model (Day 1)“, “Site Characterisation (Day 2)“, “Human-health risk assessment (Day 3)“, “Risk Management and Remediation (Day 4)” and “Reviewing Third Party Reports (Day 5)“.

    So if you or one of your team or colleagues needs to get to grips with one or more of these topic areas please checkout full details of the courses, content and discounts on our website at www.lqm.co.uk.
