Workshop 1: Fundamentals of Erosion and Sediment Control
Workshop 1 provides training for people responsible for the selection, installation, inspection or maintenance of temporary and permanent erosion and sediment control measures.
The workshop covers the fundamental principles that underpin erosion and sediment control. No prior knowledge is required.

Topics include: the theory of soils and soil conservation; how, when and why to use various erosion and sediment control products or practices, tips for conducting inspections of erosion and sediment controls on sites, plus real-world examples of reading and understanding erosion and sediment control plans.

Workshop 2: How to Use the Blue Book
Workshop 2 is designed for staff who need to understand key technical and management issues relating to erosion and sediment control in the urban environment in NSW.
The workshop gives a broad overview of the material contained in the “Blue Book”. It introduces RUSLE, the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation, as a tool for assessing erosion risk at a site under different management conditions.

Topics include: site assessment and site planning, effective methods of erosion and sediment control and how to manage and inspect a work site for erosion and sediment control.

Workshop 3: Water Management on Construction Sites
Workshop 3 trains those responsible for the selection, design or review of temporary and permanent erosion and sediment control measures on urban construction sites.
The workshop is geared mainly for consultants who prepare and regulators who review Soil and Water Management Plans. An engineering background is not required. This workshop is equally applicable to both engineers and non-engineers.

Topics include: the theory and application of water management on construction sites, how to size and design sediment basins and how to design catch drains and diversion structures.

Workshop 4: Preparing and Reviewing Plans for Soil and Water Management
Workshop 4 trains personnel responsible for the identification
and design of temporary and permanent erosion and
sediment control measures on construction sites and for their
delineation on a plan.
The workshop pulls together the information presented at
Workshops 1, 2 and 3. It is a practical application of the work
undertaken at the earlier workshops. This workshop also
trains regulators in the necessary skills for review of Soil and
Water Management Plans and Erosion and Sediment Control
Plans.

Topics include: the theory of plan preparation, how to
prepare a plan with a guided practice exercise, how to
prepare a plan using local examples and how to review Soil
and Water Management Plans and Erosion and Sediment
Control Plans.
