Wednesday 29th October -  Masterclasses
Masterclass:  Asbestos   Masterclass: Sustainable Remediation    Masterclass: Bioremediation and Molecular Biological Tools (MBT's)   Masterclass: Data Quality - Working with your Laboratory to Maximise Data Quality Objectives   Masterclass: Stakeholder Engagement: The Absolute Essentials    Masterclass: NEPM
The masterclass was presented by Annette Nolan (Enviropacific Services Services), Ian Gregson (GHD), Peter Keyte (ALS), Tony Scott (Coffey), Ross McFarland (AECOM), Prof Tim Driscoll (Epidemiologist, University of Sydney), plus regulator and occupational hygienist representatives. Keynote  " The NEPM Asbestos Soil Screening Levels and Application as Remediation Criteria" - John Howell (Senior Toxicologist, WA Department of Health and lead author of Guidelines for the Assessment, Remediation and Management of Asbestos-Contaminated Sites in Western Australia 2009) will discuss the derivation of health screening levels for asbestos in the NEPM plus the need for and possible form of site-specific asbestos in soil clean-up levels. Prof Paul Nathanail (Professor of Engineering Geology at the University of Nottingham, UK and lead author of the recently released UK asbestos guidelines - CIRIA 2014 Asbestos in soil and made ground: a guide to understanding and managing risks) will participate on the Q&A discussion panel at the end of session.   15min: Garry Smith (SuRF ANZ) Welcome

45min: Matt Vanderkooy (Geosyntec) - Sustainable Remediation (SR) in Practice

30 min - Interactive Panel Discussion (Workshop attendees) - Convener: SuRF ANZ SR practical decision-making

30min: Paul Nathanail (University of Nottingham) - An SR ISO

15min: Bruce Kennedy (CRC CARE) - National Remediation Framework compatibilities

30min: Interactive Panel Discussion (Workshop attendees) - Convener: SuRF ANZ ANZ and international Case Studies
  The Masterclass was presented by Michaye McMaster (Geosyntec Consultants) and Dora Ogles (Microbial Insights, Australia Pty Ltd).

This Masterclass is designed to give an overall introduction to the chemistry of bioremediation and system design, implementation, and performance monitoring, as well as the use of molecular tools to comprehensively evaluate treatment options and performance.  This includes:

* Fundamental science of bioremediation of plumes and NAPL sources
* Remedial Design process and considerations
* Implementation and performance monitoring
* Quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and QuantArray - quantify organisms and functional genes responsible for biodegradation
* Stable Isotope Probing (SIP) - conclusively determine whether biodegradation is occurring
* In Situ Microcosms (ISMs) - evaluate and compare remediation alternatives in the field
  The Masterclass was presented by Michael Heery (State Manager, QLD) and Marc Centner (National Technical Manager) of Australian Laboratory Services Pty Ltd (ALS).

This Masterclass is designed to support clients of environmental analytical laboratories. It will assist with communication, understanding and interaction with your laboratory experts.  The Masterclass will cover:

Š Getting the most from your Laboratory Provider

Š Sample Preservation and Holding Times - Tips and Trap

Š Field and Laboratory Techniques to Maximise Data Quality

Š  Understanding Guideline Requirements and Interpreting an Analytical Report
  The Masterclass was presented by Amanda Newbery (IAP2)

Amanda Newbery is a licensed trainer for the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2)  and managing director of Articulous Communications. She trains in the IAP2 Certificate in Public Participation, and IAP2's Emotion and Outrage in Public Participation, which provides training in how to work with communities in a state of outrage.

In land and groundwater remediation, organisations can face difficulties explaining complex technical information, gaining input and feedback from people who don't trust them, and explaining future outcomes. This hands-on workshop will explore how current day engagement practices are being affected by social and digital media. This includes:
Š Managing issues that "go viral"
Š Working with socially-connected groups
Š Using the latest technology to explain and visualise complex information simply
Š Identifying the best ways to engage communities in a genuine and transparent manner
  A survey was sent to all auditors accredited in NSW and Victoria requesting opinions as to which aspects of the NEPM  were causing the greatest difficulties, in terms of misunderstanding and misapplication, for consultants.

Following a review of the responses received, the workshop will focus on these aspects of the NEPM:

Š         The use of EILs

Š         Procedures for the assessment and management of asbestos in soil

Š         The correct selection and use of screening criteria, when multiple criteria (e.g. soil HILs, vapour intrusion HILs, hydrocarbon management limits) may be applicable.  There will be a specific focus on Management Limits.
