CL:AIRE has now published a document on “Good Practice for Risk Assessment for Coal Mine Gas Emissions”. The document is free to download and can be access via the CL:AIRE website or using the link below:
This new guidance was written by Steve Wilson (Environmental Protection Group / STRi Group Limited), Dr. Tom Henman (RSK Environment Limited), Alex Lee (WSP UK Limited) and Richard Meredith (GeoEnvironmental Consulting Ltd).
- provides advice that could be regarded as essential reading towards understanding coal mine gas risk assessment.
- is a collation of current understanding of coal mine gas risks and seeks to assist in the formulation of appropriately robust mine gas risk assessments in the UK.
- provides a decision framework and presents those factors an assessor would be expected to have considered if delivering standard good practice.
The intended audience of this document is those involved in commissioning and undertaking mine gas risk assessments to support proposed development, and local authority officers involved in regulating development management through the planning or building control regimes.
A presentation on the new document is available on the CL:AIRE website here.
