There are now many risk management and remediation options available for use at contaminated sites. It is important to be aware of these options along with their relative advantages, limitations and technical constraints in order to select the most appropriate options for the management of pollutant linkages
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.

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.
