Ground Gas Protection Training

Ground Gas protection is a technical solution to prevent or to control gas penetration into properties and structures.

Recent years has seen a greater awareness within the building sector of the risks associated with ground gases, which has led to an increasing number of construction projects requiring the use of suitable protection systems.

The installation of Ground Gas Protection Systems is a highly skilled specialised activity and is becoming more of a requirement within the industry.

Our one-day training course provides good practice on risk assessment, a pragmatic approach to ground gas risk, review of legislation and latest standards, an insight into what ground gas protection systems are, and guidance on gas protection measures.

Our focus is to provide a training course which delivers you and your teams value.  Our training courses are designed to be relevant and cost effective whilst being delivered to a high standard.
