Practical Tips Document 2018

June 2018

In June 2018, the Society of Brownfield Risk Assessment (SoBRA), the Geological Society Contaminated Land Group and RemSoc delivered a conference targeted towards early careers learning.  Its aims were:

  • To support technical excellence in the assessment, estimation & evaluation of risks and associated uncertainties from land affected by contaminants;
  • To encourage “good practice” in the practical application of risk assessment to support decisions regarding the appropriate management of land contamination; and
  • To facilitate and widen access to the dissemination of knowledge regarding land contamination risk assessment.

A commitment of this workshop has been the creation of a series of short tabular reports for each of the different discipline areas.  We have produced three practical tips documents which include human health risk assessment, controlled waters risk assessment and vapour intrusion (include link).
