Please follow this link to register

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.

Rockfalls present hazards in numerous settings including along transportation routes, mines and quarries, and dams just to name a few. This webinar is aimed at discussing how to identify and characterize the hazards related to rockfall as well as discuss the different mitigation options available. A short discussion on the different mitigation options will include constructability concerns, cost of construction, and subsequent future maintenance.

What you’ll learn:

  • Identification and characterization of hazards related to rockfall
  • Rockfall hazard mitigation design options
  • Design options: maintenance vs budget
  • Considerations for construction of mitigation measures

*Registration is limited to the first 500 attendees
