Contaminated land has been one of the last major environmental concerns to be taken seriously in the UK. It lags far behind air and water quality in terms of statutory and technical approach to control. However, the increasing focus on environmental safety by both government and the public means that land contamination is no longer an issue that need only be considered during redevelopment of abandoned or derelict sites. When land is contaminated it can affect human health, the environment and buildings and structures and can sometimes cause unacceptable risk. Good practice in the management of contaminated land involves assessment of the risk that the contamination might be posing. This training pack examines the risk assessment of contaminated land and explains the key elements of the necessary practices and procedures. It is intended to assist all practitioners to align their abilities at a common level so as to promote industry-wide consistency. The training course will be of particular benefit to geotechnical and environmental engineers, developers, regulators and lawyers, but the pack itself can be used by non-technical trainers. It includes delegate and facilitator notes for seven training modules, a copy of CIRIA C552 (2001), Contaminated land risk assessment. A guide to good practice, a PowerPoint presentation on floppy disc, and various group exercises.
