Vivien demonstrated sufficient competence in evaluating risks to groundwater and surface water to meet the highest accreditation level and to become a scrutineer for future applicants. In this role, Vivien will work alongside regulators, other consultants and clients to evaluate the competency of others with respect to groundwater risk assessment. She will also advocate sustainable risk-based remediation.
RSK chief scientist Lucy Thomas is chair of SoBRA. She says, “This is a great accolade for Viv and for RSK in demonstrating we have dedicated and technically superb individuals.”
“I feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to be involved in the launch of this new scheme and to have been recognised as meeting the requirements of the highest accreditation level and that of a scrutineer,” Vivien says.
