ON DEMAND - The Hidden Carcinogen on Every Contaminated Land Project – Respirable Crystalline Silica

It’s the contaminant that’s almost guaranteed to be everywhere. A contaminant that causes cancer and other incurable diseases that cut workers lives short. But yet this contaminant is rarely listed as a contaminant of concern, and rarely given the same level of attention as other cancer-causing...

Unexpected Creosote Contamination – When a CSM Isn’t Enough

This session is a case study in what can go wrong even when all the boxes appear to have been “ticked” in your desk study information checklist.  We will go through the desk study information which proves that hindsight is 20/20 and then also summarise the site works and remediation undertaken...

Advancing Site Characterisation by Assembling Multiple Contemporary and Historical Data Sources

“Poorly planned and executed site characterisation is likely to result in additional expense, both during the investigation and subsequent remediation, and inadequate or misleading data may also result in an increased risk to human health and the environment.” (CRC CARE Technical Report 11). In...
