Study day offers up-to-date guidance on odour management

Specialist odour consultancy Silsoe Odours is offering a one-day course on odour management on 31 January 2019. It is seemingly the only CPD-Certified odour management and control training course available in the UK, and it has been accredited by CIWEM and is endorsed by the Institute of Air Quality Management.

Now in its twelfth year, the Odour Study Day has been developed by leading odour professionals based on their own extensive experience. It provides clear, up-to-date guidance on the principles, concepts and methods of odour management.

The Odour Study Day is delivered at Silsoe Odour’s odour laboratory in Bedfordshire, in partnership with RSK-ADAS. According to the firm, 100% of 2017 course participants recommended the course.

Who is it for?
The course is intended to benefit anyone involved with odour management. It will seemingly enhance participants’ understanding of everyday applications and set the key issues into context. Specifically, it will benefit regulators, operators of odorous industries, local authorities, consultants, air quality professionals and abatement equipment suppliers.

What’s involved?
The Odour Study Day will expand delegates’ theoretical knowledge and practical skills relating to the management and control of odours. It uses a combination of presentations from industry professionals, industry-specific case studies and group discussion sessions. There is also a practical session in the Silsoe Odours UKAS-accredited laboratory.

Delegates have the opportunity to take part in a taster Odour Sensitivity Test at the firm’s on-site laboratory. “This will give you an indication of your individual sensitivity to odours and will be especially useful for those involved in assessing ‘nuisance’ odours”, says Silsoe’s literature.

The primary areas of learning including sampling and odour measurement, dispersion modelling, odour complaints, odour abatement plant performance, systematic field odour surveys, and odour and EPR/IPPC.
