QPANI training workshop
THE Quarry Products Association Northern Ireland (QPANI) is to hold a one-day training workshop on biodiversity, geodiversity and archaeology on Wednesday 28 February at the Lough Neagh Discovery Centre, Oxford Island, Craigavon, Co. Armagh.
Open to QPANI members and non-members alike, the event is expected to be of interest to environmental managers, quarry managers, site operatives and others who have a role in implementing environmental improvement measures specified in the Aggregates Levy Credit Scheme.
The workshop itself will provide guidance and support to further good practice on site including: understanding legal compliance regarding wildlife legislation; how to go beyond compliance by means of biodiversity enhancement; considering the potential impact on wildlife and how to mitigate against it; the timing of work with respect to breeding seasons, surveying etc; and responding to unexpected archaeological and geological discoveries.
QPANI say the information provided on the day will assist delegates in setting up their own staff training sessions.
