The expert way to search: the Enviro All-in-One report

In this webinar we showcase the newly enhanced Enviro All-in-One report, our fully integrated coal mining and residential environmental risk report, produced by the Coal Authority with our partners at Groundsure.

This is the only available report to combine the Coal Authority’s official CON29M coal mining search with flood, contaminated land and other ground stability searches.

We will provide you with an understanding of how the Enviro All-in-One also screens other environmental risks such as energy, transportation and planning, to provide a comprehensive environmental check.

You will learn more about the risks associated with the legacy of coal mining and environmental factors, the detail within the new report and the support available from both the Coal Authority and Groundsure.

Building a better coal mining risk assessment

During this webinar, our industry leading experts will talk you through the importance of using the best available data as the basis for your risk assessments, allowing you to deliver a first class service to your clients.

Using a real life case study of the construction of a mine water treatment scheme, the learning objectives will include:

  • helping you to gain a greater understanding of the coal mining legacy impact on land quality
  • discussing and identifying the challenges and risks with coal mining risk assessments
  • understanding the importance of full data analysis for site characterisation
  • reviewing your own approach to coal mining risk assessments
  • demonstrating the way the new Consultants Coal Mining Report can support you and your clients

Helping you interpret the hidden risks

In this webinar we recommend the products required to give you everything you need when interpreting mining risks, to provide you with peace of mind, by fully explaining our full range of follow on reports.

Supporting your future developments

As well as being the provider of the official Law Society approved CON29M report and our unique follow on reports, we also offer a specialist report for consultants and developers.

As the experts on Britain’s coal mining legacy, this report provides valuable information on mine entries and individual coal seams that have been worked, including shallow workings – which can be a significant hidden risk.

We will provide you with everything you need to know about our Consultant’s Report by bringing the risks to life with a case study and compare and contrast this with our official Non-residential CON29M report.

Mine gas – odourless, colourless, dangerous

This webinar demonstrates how the Coal Authority manage risks from the hazardous coal mine gases: methane, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulphide.

The presentation features a case study of a mine gas hazard and tells you how to get more information on mine gas emissions.
