How to Deal with Flooded Buildings
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (Check in time: 8 a.m.)
New Brunswick, NJ
Rutgers University Course Code: EI0304CA13
Some health hazards associated with water-damaged or flooded buildings are well recognized and others are not so well known. Safety hazards, physical agents, chemical hazards and microbiological organisms are among the issues of concern after a building sustains water damage. Specific examples of flood-related hazards include unstable structures, electrical problems, slips, trips, and falls, lead, asbestos, silica and a variety of microbial agents (such as pathogenic viruses and bacteria, parasites, and fungi). In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, many in the Eastern part of the US, including the tri-state area, are dealing with flooding and water damage. This new one-day program will help you understand how to manage the problem, protect yourself and minimize your potential liability. It will also make you an educated consumer of remedial services or better able to advise your constituencies as to the appropriate response to these catastrophic water events. Using real-world case studies, you will learn how to respond to known or suspected microbiological and/or chemical contamination in a flooded building and produce scientifically sound recommendations for remedial activities.

Eastern Regional Meeting - Society for Petroleum Engineers of PA
Pittsburgh, Pa

Over the past 5 years since the last ERM was held in Pittsburgh the basin has grown considerably to accommodate the explosion of the Marcellus shale and more recently, its older brother, the Utica shale. The result of this is the rich legacy of experience that was already present in the basin is now armed with access to and the application for the latest technology for oil and gas field development. This has shifted our basin from being a mere ‘user’ of technology to being a true ‘developer’ of technology. We have also seen the industry embrace the added environmental challenges of the area and work through solutions that benefit the communities in which we operate. The theme of the 2013 Eastern Regional Meeting is appropriately named “Bridging Experience with Technology” and Pittsburgh will be the perfect venue to share these realized successes to others in the basin and to showcase them to those operating in similar unconventional basins outside of the area. More information
