The Odour Study Day is held at our specialist odour laboratory in Bedfordshire, and delivered in partnership with RSK-ADAS.
Who is it for?
This popular one day course will be beneficial to regulators, odorous industries and abatement equipment suppliers. Developed by leading industry experts with extensive field experience, it will provide clear, up-to-date guidance on the principles, concepts and methods of odour management.
Using real life case studies, the Odour Study Day will expand delegates’ theoretical knowledge and practical skills relating to the management and control of odours.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to try a taster of an Odour Sensitivity Test at our UKAS-accredited odour laboratory. This provides an indication of sensitivity to odours and will be useful for those involved in assessing “nuisance” odours.
What's in it for me?
At the end of the course, delegates will;
- Be familiar with the objective measurement of odours
- Understand how measurement and modelling techniques can be used to address odour nuisance and planning problems
- Be familiar with odour regulations and understand how olfactometry fits within this
- Have seen, and experienced, how odour concentration analysis is undertaken
- Receive a certificate to show the results of their individual Odour Sensitivity Test and is useful for CPD.
