BRIC Talks Webinar - Asbestos in soil: the way to manage the risk

About this Event

Asbestos in soil remains a problem in many sites across the UK. In recent years more research has been carried out resulting in newer guidance publications, however confusion remains regarding the application of good practice when assessing and managing asbestos risk in contaminated land projects. This affects local authorities who are the primary regulators for contaminated land projects.

We are delighted to welcome Joanne Kwan of CIRIA (the Construction Industry Research and Information Association). Joanne will discuss the current good practice in dealing with asbestos in soil risk, how the existing guidance and tools can help construction professionals, particularly those in the SME sector deal with the problem.
