In recent years there have been significant developments in our understanding of the risks posed by ground gases (eg methane and carbon dioxide) and organic vapours that can impact on redevelopment projects. This has resulted in a plethora of new guidance relating to the investigation, assessment, remediation and verification of gas-affected land.
LQM have partnered with Steve Wilson and EPG ltd, authors of several of the new guidance documents, to develop this introductory course, which is designed for delegates of all abilities; for beginners to those with lots of experience of sites impacted by ground gases (eg methane and carbon dioxide) and organic vapours. The course is intended to provide both regulators and consultants the opportunity to gain a good grounding in the requirements of the latest British Standards and industry guidance relating to the investigation, assessment and management of potential risks posed by ground gases and vapours both under redevelopment and Part 2A regimes.
This course offers delegates the opportunity to learn from leading industry experts EPG ltd how to assess and manage the risks posed by ground gases and vapours. The course will:
By the end of the course you should be better able to understand:
All delegates will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance – which should be retained and used to provide evidence of CPD activity when required by employers or professional bodies.
