SoBRA held a workshop on assessing risks to human health from asbestos in soil in June 2013. The workshops aims were to: support site investigation practice, laboratory analysis methods and examine risks to site workers; evaluate remediation and re-use options; and derive a decision algorithm for existing and future land users. Quantification and management of the risks posed to human health from asbestos in soil are important current topics for practitioners dealing with land affected by contamination. This report will be used to support the chapter on risk assessment in the forthcoming Joint Industry Working Group guidance on asbestos in soil. Proceedings and presentation slides from the workshop are available free to members.
