Webinars 2021 

Thursday 29th July, 2pm – AGS Assessment and Control of Asbestos Risk in Soil, Marian Markham (report co-author), Jacobs;

The presentation will be a review of the AGS Assessment and Control of Asbestos Risk in Soil by its co-author. The aim of this guidance is to assist employers in their duty to protect personnel undertaking ground investigations against exposure to asbestos. This guidance is split into two parts:

•Part 1 provides information on the assessment and control of asbestos in soil for the protection of personnel working on ground investigations and

•Part 2 provides information for the protection of personnel working in laboratories associated with testing samples obtained from those investigations.

Tuesday 14th September – Ground Gas and Alluvium – Steve Wilson, EPG

    Future Sponsorship

    In normal circumstances (hopefully 2022), ELQF try to organise 2 to 3 meetings/seminars a year.  The events are free to all and we do not charge joining or membership fees relying on the goodwill and generosity of our members to offer their time to provide interesting and relevant presentations.

    However, there are costs associated with venue hire and catering and for this reason we look to cover our costs for each event through sponsorship.  Sponsorship costs are therefore largely dependent on the venue but as a guide, the typical sponsorship costs for each meeting are about £1,500.

    If you would be interested in sponsoring a future event (either fully or partially) please contact
