Sediment is the number one pollutant in waterways. Sediment-laden runoff increases the Total Suspended Solid (TSS) and turbidity (NTU) of the receiving waterways. Uncontrolled earth disturbance, deforestation and construction activities, exposed to rainfall and runoff, cause excessive erosion and sedimentation to the environment. The larger the exposed earth disturbance the higher risk of water pollution which can adversely impact the public health, safety and welfare. Therefore, qualified erosion and sediment control plan (ESCP) preparers must produce designs that allow proper management of earth disturbance activities including the associated processes and soils, and operators/ contractors must follow the plans and specifications, to minimize water pollution and prevent water quality violation. This two day training course with optional half day site visit is offered by IEM Academy Sdn Bhd for those who are interested to make a difference to the way earthworks are commonly being done.


Course Content

The course will focus on preparing an effective ESCP based on a systematic approach, ESCP implementation and best management practices (BMPs) inspection and reporting for water pollution risks mitigation. The course will cover the following topics to prepare the participants with practical knowledge and skill sets needed to deal with issues/ challenges as well as applicable regulatory requirements related to erosion and sediment control (ESC) and storm water pollution prevention. It will look at some examples and/or case studies and BMPs that are relevant to the Malaysia scenario.

  • ESCP Preparation and Design Considerations
  • Pre- & Post- Bulk Grading Design
  • Erosion and Sediment Control Design and Selection
  • ESCP Implementation Sequence
  • Site Stabilization Plan
  • ESC Inspection, Maintenance and Reporting



By the end of the Workshop, the participants will be able to

  • Understand the principles and typical important design considerations in preparing an effective ESCP
  • Prepare a complete, clear and understandable ESCP based on a systematic approach
  • Implement the ESCP and act on incidents in a timely manner.
  • Perform proper inspection and reporting
  • Mitigate water pollution risks
  • Understand the requirements of CPESC, CESSWI and CISEC certifications
  • Know how to prepare for the professional certification exams


Who should attend?

The course is designed for all professionals and practitioners who are involved in the design and construction of earthworks in development projects namely Engineers, Contractors, Developers, Planners, Environmental Auditors/ Scientists, Architects, Designers or Inspectors, Local Authority Officers, Installer/Vendors of Erosion & Sediment Control (ESC) products, Project Site Supervisors, Compliance Officers and / or Agency Representatives among others.  You will also learn more about Erosion and Sediment Control certifications and the respective exams through this course.
