Asbestos in Soil | Scotland, UK


Asbestos in Soil

The Challenge

IKM was requested to provide support in managing asbestos contaminated soils and to undertake an options appraisal to identify remedial solutions to minimise potential risks to human health. IKM was also requested to consider potential exposure which may have already occurred and to determine associated health risks.

The Solution

IKM used a specialist consultant to complete a detailed quantitative risk assessment on possible exposure from the asbestos stockpile. It was concluded that previous exposure was likely to be minimal and no significant risk existed.  In addition, IKM identified possible remedial solutions which included source removal, in addition to temporary and permanent capping. This enabled the client to make an informed decision to satisfy existing and future objectives, whilst removing any ongoing risk from dust generation.
