Humans are key receptors of the hazards posed by land contamination under both Part 2A and Planning Control. Therefore, human health risk assessment is often an essential step for contaminated sites.
This course has recently been updated and redesigned around a new hands-on practical, which provides delegates with an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of some of the key aspects of toxicology and exposure estimiation.
This is one of a series of 5 one-day courses covering the fundamental subject matter relevant to the investigation, assessment and management of land contamination. The courses aim to improve knowledge of the subject matter and the application of this knowledge in the risk-based approach for the assessment and management of land contamination. The courses in this series cover legislation and conceptual models, site characterisation, human-health risk assessment, remediation and risk management and reviewing 3rd Party reports. These courses can be taken individually or in combination.
The course will:
The Practical session will involve using and understanding CLEA software output reports for human health risk assessment.
Land Quality Management courses are renowned for their relevance and quality. This comes from our belief that training should be interesting, relevant and make a difference to the way our delegates go about their normal contaminated land related business. We always select top quality tutors with both the experience to communicate and the knowledge to share – as well as the enthusiasm to improve the way land contamination issues are tackled.
By the end of the course delegates should be better able to:
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
This is an introductory course suitable for new starters, those needing a refresher or for those managing contaminated land staff.
