SOLD OUT EVENT
Asbestos containing materials (ACMs) were widely used in construction, and it is difficult (and sometimes not possible) to ensure that all asbestos is removed before demolition. Building rubble is liable to contain ACM, and may contain free fibres. Asbestos from soil has attracted a lot of attentions in the past ten years because recent case laws demonstrated that clients, consultants and contractors could be liable if they did not follow good practice when dealing with asbestos from soil.
Since 2014, CIRIA has produced guidance on asbestos in soil. This started with C733 Asbestos in soil and made ground: a guide to understanding and managing risks (the first guidance of its kind in the past 20 years), to the publication of a site guide and now an app which is aimed at ground and site workers. Later on 2020, CIRIA will also launched an eLearning course for non-licenced work.
This event will:
- Discuss recent update legal cases that relate asbestos in soil
- Discuss current (still) issue people have in managing asbestos in soil
- Give an overview of how recent guidance is helping people manage asbestos in soil
- How the first asbestos in soil app can help people spot ACM
