This webinar provides 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH). Certificates are provided via email to all attending registrants per webinar within two weeks of attendance. To receive a certificate you must register independently and login and view the webinar for the duration of the event. Partial hours will be provided dependent on your participation.

Engineers and maintenance professionals are increasingly faced with emergency geohazard events that impact critical infrastructure and transportation corridors.  This webinar will discuss the role of preventative maintenance and the importance of a safe and timely response while presenting several recent case studies resulting from rainfall, flooding, and river erosion.

What you’ll learn:

  • The definition of and examples of common geohazards
  • The role of preventative maintenance
  • Importance of a timely response
  • Construction/installation procedure and field equipment
  • Innovative geohazard solutions

*Registration is limited to the first 500 attendees
