Training course launched to improve landfill site integrity

Geomembrane linings and pipes

Engineering training company TWI is partnering with the Environment Agency (EA) to train staff responsible for checking the integrity of geomembrane linings and pipes at landfill sites.

TWI is introducing a one-day course designed for EA inspectors and construction quality assurance (CQA) engineers.

The consequences of a landfill geomembrane failing and allowing toxic chemicals and leachate to leak into the local environment could be catastrophic, so it is imperative that they are inspected and quality-assured. To be able to do this effectively, inspectors and CQA engineers need a good knowledge of the processes involved in constructing a landfill geomembrane.

Many of those responsible for fabricating geomembrane linings will have completed TWI’s Lining Membrane Welding course, the only programme of its type that leads to internationally recognised CSWIP certification. TWI has now adapted this course for personnel inspecting the work of engineers and technicians.
