Sweet is the technical lead for SCG Industries high-resolution
site characterization tools and services. He has completed his Bachelor of Science
in Environmental Science from Acadia University and a Masters in Chemical Engineering
from the University of New Brunswick. Ben is a key member of SCG team playing
a major role in research & development, remedial action planning, pilot testing,
technical design, and contaminated site data interpretation.
In these roles
he has completed numerous projects across North America, conducting both large
and small scale remediation projects and high resolution site characterization
investigations. Ben strives to ensure SCGs clients are equipped with the
latest innovative technologies and strategies to help cost-effectively address
their environmental liabilities. Ben has presented at numerous conferences and
been involved in technical workshops for both government and private organizations.
Mr.Sweet will lecture on high-resolution site characterization tools and techniques.
Sigal, B.Sc., QPRA is the President of Intrinsik Environmental Sciences
Inc. and Intrinsik Health Sciences Inc. Mr. Sigal graduated
with an Honours
B.Sc. in Toxicology from the University of Toronto in 1988 and has over 25 years
of experience in toxicology, human
health and ecological risk assessment, and
risk communication. Mr. Sigal has been responsible for leading risk assessment
teams in determination
of potential for exposure of and risk to receptors associated
with complex contaminated sites, mining/smelting facilities, military base closures,
storage tanks, incinerator/WTE emissions, landfill sites, consumer products and
industrial processes. He has overseen and contributed to hundreds of risk assessments.
Mr. Sigal's lecture will provide an introduction to the underlying concepts
and general approaches for Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment (HERA).
Participants of this lecture will gain an understanding of the role of HERA in
contaminated site assessment and remediation, basic components of HERA, complexity
of planning a HERA, identifying HERA objectives, basic approaches to toxicity
and exposure assessments, receptor and risk characterization, and dealing with
uncertainty in HERA.
Barrett manages Accuworxs Emergency Services division. Specializing
in high hazard chemical releases and containment. Logan has extensive training
in chemical fire-fighting, hazardous materials response, railway emergency response,
clandestine lab mitigation, chemical security and crude oil releases. Logan has
been contracted by various agencies across Canada to teach hazardous materials
and emergency response techniques. With the ability to design structured curriculum
and industry specific lesson plans Logans course content has proven to be
extremely effective when applied to field scenarios. With over 2000 deployments
Logan has developed his reputation on an international scale for quick, efficient,
and safe responses. Mr. Barrett will be discussing and demonstrating occupational
health and safety issues for contaminated and hazardous waste sites.
demonstrations of site characterization and remediation technologies
will be held at a location near the hotel from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Full-scale
soil and groundwater remediation technologies, and drilling, geophysical, and
sampling and analysis equipment will be demonstrated. The temperature in early
June in Toronto ranges from 10-22 C. Attendees should have appropriate apparel,
such as rain gear, casual work clothes, and good walking shoes. Cameras and camcorders
