AECOM Confirmed Speaker
Conference host Lucion Services are pleased to announce AECOM’s Practice Leader for Quantitative Risk Assessment, Simon Cole as a workshop speaker at Asbestos The Truth 2017.
Asbestos in Soils Workshop
The Environment Agency regulations require the quantification of asbestos in soils is determined so that an assessment can be made in relation to hazardous waste handling arrangements and human health risk assessments.
Simon was part of the project steering group for Defra Research project SP1014, he designed and co-authored the decision support tools to support the CAR-SOIL guidance published by CLA:IRE/JIWG in 2016, and has co-authored a number of SoBRA discussion papers on the assessment of asbestos in soil.
His discussion aims to highlight some of the ways in which the asbestos industry can better work together to support future asbestos in soils initiatives and skill sharing to boost the knowledge throughout the sector. Simon will also cover his experiences of working on projects with CL:AIRE to improve the understanding and approach to this problem.
