Safety Inspection and Assessment of Memorials in Burial Grounds
Training to be held in Rugby on Wednesday 16 July 2014. 10.00am to 4.00pm
A one day course which is structured around the Ministry of Justice guidelines ‘Managing the Safety of Burial Ground Memorials’ and will focus on a ‘Risk Assessment’ based approach. All aspects of memorial assessment will be covered in the course, from understanding different types of natural stone and the way in which it changes with time, through to memorial construction and how this might impact decisions on safety. The important area of ‘making safe’ will also be included.
The morning will be spent in the classroom studying in-depth theory, and the afternoon will be spent putting the theory into practice. Lunch is provided.
