Safe Intrusive Activities on Land Potentially Impacted by Contamination provides health, safety and environmental information and good practice recommendations for professionals engaged with intrusive activities on land potentially impacted by contamination. The book is relevant to all intrusive activities, including ground investigations, piling, land drilling, earthworks and ground remediation. This publication aims to promote safe working practices, and to improve awareness of health, safety and environmental matters. Land potentially affected by contamination contains particular hazards that require the employment of specialist geoenvironmental services with appropriately trained and experienced office and site personnel, suitable plant and equipment, and high levels of supervision and response. The guidance has been structured to be read as a whole in the order presented. Coverage reflects recent developments in health, safety and environmental legislation, and changes to working practices, equipment and methods, and also the greater prominence given continuous risk assessment.
