As a site auditor, Colin can be engaged to independently review contaminated land consultant reports to ensure the methods and interpretations of data are consistent with the NSW EPA’s guidelines and relevant contaminated land legislation. This is an extension to the current Contaminated Land Management (CLM) service WSP provides to industry.
With 20 years of experience, Colin is one of only 37 accredited auditors based in NSW.
He says, “This is an exciting moment in my career which comes as a natural progression in my profession. It is an opportunity to give back to the industry as it allows me to have an impact on maintaining our environmental protection standards while allowing me to continue to apply and develop my technical skills.
“It also serves as a prime opportunity for WSP to grow its services in the CLM space.”
Becoming an auditor requires applicants to meet rigorous criteria. “Given the complexity of the field there is much to learn about the technical side of CLM as well as the legislation surrounding it.” adds Colin.
“CLM is critical to society and the role auditors play is significant in upholding the standards the NSW EPA has set. I’m excited to begin this new challenge and to take my part in creating safe, liveable and thriving communities.”
Stephen Barnett, WSP Team Executive for CLM in Australia says, “Colin’s accreditation is due reward after years of technical excellence in the industry. This exciting addition to our CLM service offering presents our staff with new opportunities for technical development and we can now provide our clients flexible and holistic contaminated land services.
“We look forward to capitalising on this strategic growth opportunity.”
