- THIS COURSE HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE AND WE WILL ADVISE MEMBERS IN DUE COURSE ONCE WE ARE ABLE TO RE-SCHEDULE THIS TRAINING -
ACLCA NSW is proposing to hold a 2-Day Occupational Health and Safety training course specifically targeted to working on contaminated land projects and providing attendees with relevant examples and case studies relating to working in this industry. For personnel new to this industry, it will provide an awareness of the key hazards associated with their routine work. For personnel who already have experience within the industry but have not had any formal training, it will provide exposure to best practice controls associated with their work.
The course will be delivered by Steve Brazil, National Health, Safety and Environment Manager for Senversa. Steve has 25 years’ experience in the contaminated land and waste environmental consulting industry, both as a consultant and a HSE advisor.
Contaminated land specific topics covered during the course include:
- Service (utility) identification and clearance, including non-destructive digging and hand augering
- Understanding plant risks e.g. working with drill rigs, excavators, NDD units
- Managing and working with subcontractors
- Understanding the risks of working with asbestos and what to do when finding it on site
- Chemical exposure, including identification of workplace occupational exposure levels for common contaminants.
Proposed Dates: Tuesday 28 - Wednesday 29 April 2020 (pending industry interest).
Cost: Approx. $400pp for members and approx. $600pp for non-members Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Participants will be limited to a maximum group size of 20.
Location: Sydney CBD location TBC
Note: Participants from other states are welcome to attend, but should bear in mind that the course content, whilst broadly applicable, will not specifically address the legislative and regulatory requirements of other states. ACLCA NSW reserves the right to cancel or postpone courses, should there be insufficient numbers to proceed.
