CSci certified: Karl achieves chartership

December 01, 2020

Congratulations to RSK Principal Geoenvironmental Engineer Karl Hall who has successfully achieved chartered status with The Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES). Karl is now a Chartered Scientist (CSci).

The IES, which promotes environmental science and represents the full spectrum of environmental disciplines, explains the significance of this chartership: “The CSci designation demonstrates a high level of competence and professionalism in science. At present, there are over around 10,500 chartered scientists working across all sectors of science.” To be awarded Chartered Scientist status, Karl had to submit a professional competency report supported by a long-form curriculum vitae and evidence of continuous professional development.

As well as demonstrating a high level of competence and a commitment to continuing professional development, this formal professional accreditation will enable Karl, of RSK’s Manchester, UK, office, to further progress in his field of expertise.  

With around 15 years’ industry experience designing and managing intrusive site investigations, contaminated land risk assessments and remediation, more recently Karl’s role has focussed on excavated waste classification and assessment, materials re-use and permitting and landfill. Karl was recently promoted to principal grade and, with Chartered Scientist status, he will now be able to undertake further training including the accreditation required to become a Qualified Person (QP) under CL:AIRE’s Definition of Waste Code of Practice, a key service to RSK’s clients in the construction and civils sectors. He will continue to support the waste team in all aspects of RSK’s waste management offering.

Congratulations, Karl!
