Dams and Public Safety (2 days)
Oct. 3 & 4, 2015
Delta Meadowvale Hotel
With the increasing use of water resources for recreation and other public purposes, dam owners and operators are expected to manage their facilities to minimize risk to the general public. The Canadian Dam Association has developed a practical, hands-on workshop providing realistic case studies and tools that can immediately be applied for assessment of public safety risks at a facility. With instructors trained in the CDA methodology and materials, classes are limited in size so that participation is maximized and case studies can be addressed by small working groups.
Managers and operators of dam facilities, regulators and consultants who make risk management assessments or decisions related to public safety should consider attending this workshop.
Instruction will be based on the CDA Guidelines for Public Safety Around Dams, 2011
. The Guidelines are available for purchase via "Shop CDA" (link at left).
Participants will be given a training binder upon arrival at no extra charge.
