Our erosion and sediment control course will provide participants with a suite of best practice procedures for erosion, sediment and drainage control on construction and building sites in accordance with the requirements of the International Erosion Control Association Australasia.

Learning outcomes

  • An ability to plan and design an effective erosion and sediment control plan.
  • An ability to assess the suitability of an erosion and sediment control plan for development approval.
  • An ability to undertake effective compliance.

Participants will develop an understanding of

  • Key principles of erosion and sediment control.
  • How to select the most appropriate temporary drainage, erosion and sediment control measures for your site.
  • Key steps in the development of erosion and sediment control plans.
  • Model codes of practice: General construction, building sites and installation of services.
  • Potential erosion hazard of a work site.
  • Typical development approval conditions, for use in the management of land-disturbing activities.
  • Site inspection checklists to ensure appropriate site management and compliance in accordance with erosion and sediment control plans.

Participants will develop skills in application of:

  • site planning checklists
  • the iAuditor tool
  • detailed checklist for assessing erosion and sediment control plans.

Who should attend?

  • Consulting engineers responsible for planning erosion and sediment control plans for construction sites.
  • Development assessment officers responsible for compliance assessment of erosion and sediment control plans (formerly referred to as soil erosion and drainage management plans).
  • Local and state government project managers/site supervisors responsible for construction supervision.
