Title: Project Management Challenges at Remote Cleanup Sites

Speaker: Andrea Hopkins, WRPS

Note: This meeting is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

The Eastern Washington Chapter Academy of Certified Hazardous Managers (EWC-ACHMM) will sponsor a presentation entitled Project Management Challenges at Remote Cleanup Sites on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at the Richland Library. Andrea Hopkins will relate essential aspects of planning and implementation of project management activities at remote locations. This work is based on her experiences in the Alaskan Arctic Circle and Johnston Atoll in the South Pacific. Project planning included anticipating living conditions, logistics, transportation, maintenance and safety. In Alaska, protecting against bear intrusions and managing interfaces with the local native population were a major focus. Comprehensive planning of remediation projects at distant sites is completed far in advance, and likely without a mechanism to address second thoughts.

The EWC-ACHMM will serve complimentary light refreshments.
