RSK’s Tom Henman helps to launch new CL:AIRE publication

September 28, 2021

RSK Geosciences Director Tom Henman will be taking part in CL:AIRE’s busy calendar of events this Autumn as it gets ready to launch a new publication: Good Practice for Risk Assessment for Coal Mine Gas Emissions. As one of the authors of the new guidance, Tom will be presenting at the CL:AIRE introductory webinar of the same title on 4 October.

The webinar and new guidance are a culmination of Tom’s work on mine gas issues over the last three years, since RSK was commissioned by the Scottish Government to investigate the prevalence of carbon dioxide and other emissions from disused mineral mines and the consequences for residential buildings, following a well-publicised incident in Gorebridge. Since co-authoring the research report, Tom has discussed its key findings and the implications for the planning and development process at numerous industry events, including at an Environment Analyst webinar, “Risks of Mine Gas to Housing: Recent Findings”, at the Brownfield Land Scotland conference and at the Brownfield Summit 2020. He has played a key role in developing the new CL:AIRE guidance for undertaking mine gas risk assessments.

During the lunchtime session, which will run from 12:30–13:30, Tom and the other authors will provide a short summary of the new CL:AIRE guidance and will highlight the key learning points. Attendees will also have the chance to quiz the panel with a question-and-answer session.

With the guidance due to launch on the same day, this is a must-attend event for anyone interested in understanding and mitigating the risks from mine gas to existing properties and development within former coal mining areas of the UK and beyond.
