Webinar Recording: Blowin' in the Wind - Risk Assessments of Asbestos in Soil

Only £30 (excl VAT) with online card payment discount.

Asbestos fibre release can be measured in the field and/ or estimated in the laboratory, backed up by cross referencing literature values.

The legal context and preliminary conceptual site model should influence the mix of measurement and estimation.

We will explore through a realistic scenario the decisions on what data to gather and how to interpret them under both planning and Part 2A scenarios.

This is a ~65min recording of the Professional Practice Webinar originally delivered on 21st February 2020 by LQM’s Paul Nathanail as part of LQM's continued commitment to raising standards among practitioners and regulators on topics of timely relevance.  (NOTE: only access to the recording will be provided, original handouts are not included and the recording does not include the Q&A session at the end of the webinar).

Prices and discounts: Prices exclude VAT. Please note purchase is via online card payment only - a 20% discount will automatically be applied. 

Invoice purchases will be declined

Recording link: provided by email once payment has been received.
