LQM is a specialist environmental consultancy based in Nottingham (UK) with an international reputation for assessing and managing the risks posed to human health and the environment by contaminants in soil. Increasingly this is being done within a context of sustainable development and specifically sustainable brownfield regeneration.
We provide consultancy, peer review and expert witness services, contract research and training courses on all aspects of the management of land contamination to problem holders, developers and local government.

This is NOT a CAR-Soil course. We are assuming that delegates will be familiar with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the need to comply with them, where relevant, when working with asbestos-containing soils.
Asbestos is considered to be one of many potential contaminants that should be considered during any human health risk assessment under both Planning and Part 2A legislation. This course explores the unique nature of asbestos and the challenges it presents to standard method of risk assessment and remediation. The Course uses a simulated exercise to help delegates understand and work through the issues and complexities involved in risk assessment and to explore a range of solutions to evaluating and managing the risks to current or future land users.
We will also highlight the multidisciplinary nature of working with asbestos-containing soils, including the additional skills needed by both asbestos consultants and contaminated land consultants to competently assess asbestos in soils under planning and Part 2A.
The course will be delivered by co-authors of CIRIA's Asbestos in soil and made ground: a guide to understanding and managing risks (C733)
The course will describe:
Those investigating sites suspected of being contaminated by asbestos:
|Nottingham (Private Sector)||TBC||£285.00||12||
|Nottingham (Public sector)||TBC||£170.00||16||
Note: All prices exclude VAT, which we are obliged to charge at the prevailing rate
