This one-day course will look at the sampling and scheduling process as well as the analytical methods typically used for ground investigations and geotechnical work where contaminated ground is likely to be present.
Sampling as a means of understanding unsampled locations
Sampling strategies & protocols for:
Soil (including headspace/PID)
Gases and vapours
Scheduling Analytical Methods – metals & TPH, etc.
In situ and on-site testing
Standards and Specification
SPECIALIST GEOTECHNICAL TRAINING PROVIDED TO OVER 1000 GEOTECHNICAL MANAGERS, TECHNICIANS, ENGINEERS AND DRILLERS SINCE 2014
At the end of the course the delegates should be able to:
Understand good sampling strategies and limitations
Understand sampling protocols and procedures
Know how to take, handle, store and transport: Soil samples, water samples, gases and vapour samples
Choose the right analytical methods
Have an awareness of how in-situ and on-site testing can be used to compliment laboratory analysis
Understand how standards and specifications should be used
BESPOKE, SPECIALIST TRAINING FACILITIES FOR GEOTECHNICAL COURSES
This course has been developed for graduates, engineering geologists, geotechnical engineers and those designing and involved in geotechnical investigations where contaminated land is a potential risk. It is also suitable for those transferring from geotechnics into geoenvironmental work and those who have been working in the geoenvironmental field for a while, who want to get clarification on right way to do things.
