1 PROVIDED BY Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. REAL-TIME ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING IN CONSTRUCTION: A RISK MANAGEMENT FRIEND OR FOE? Presented By: Michael Wiebe, ARM PE Bruce D. Groves, CIH

2 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. Michael Wiebe, ARM, PE - President, Wiebe Associates, LLC; Sleepy Hollow, NY Bruce D. Groves, CIH – President, Emilcott Technologies, LLC; Morristown, NJ SPEAKERS

3 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. Introduction The Impact of Big Data in EHS in Construction Risk Management Issues Technology Questions and Answers AGENDA

4 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. US Construction projected to be $946 Billion in 2014 Construction is disruptive, dirty, unpopular and potentially hazardous Exposures - What was previously anecdotal is now quantifiable! How does that change the Risk Management strategies? CONSTRUCTION

5 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. BIG EHS DATA IN A BOX

6 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. Innovation, Innovation, Innovation 1.Detectors, Sensors and Bundling 2.Field Computers 3.Wireless Communication 4.Database Processing 5.User Interfaces and Visualization ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY

7 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. Noise Vibration Dust, Particulates, and Aerosols Fumes Vapors and Gases Radiation – Ionizing and Non Ionizing CONSTRUCTION EXPOSURES AND HAZARDS

8 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. 1.Particulates and Aerosols 2.Vapors and Gases (TVOC) 3.Real-time Chemical Screening with Automated Sampling 4.Reduced Sulfur and Hydrogen Sulfide – Odor Quantification 5.Weather and Wind Speed and Direction 6.Noise (AUDIO clip) 7.Vibration 8.Optical sensors 9.Video BIG DATA OPTIONS AT CONSTRUCTION SITES

9 – New NY Bridge Construction $4 Billion 5 Year bridge construction project Much public pressure – locally very unpopular Real-time Monitoring promised, mandated and deployed Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited.

10 To Gain Support - Environmental Monitoring was Promised:  Up to12 stations conducting real-time monitoring:  Dust (PM 2.5, 10 and Total),  Noise and Vibration  Wind Speed and Direction

11 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited.  Dust, Noise and Vibration Readings 24x7x52x5  43,680 hours x 12 stations  524,160 hours of sampling results anticipated  Data every 15 seconds = Millions of sampling points 5 YEARS OF BIG DATA

12 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. $100 MM construction of office building on urban Brownfield site 10 th Brownfield Construction Project 8 Stations -18 months – Dust, Noise and Vibration 24/7 RISK MANAGEMENT CASE

13 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. How will this be different than the other 9 projects? Who will get access to this data? Will it change how we perform the construction? Will it add cost to the project? What are the consequences to generating all this data? RISK MANAGER ASKS:

14 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. There is a high probability of exceedances Exceedances may not be related to construction There will be a need for more resources to handle the real-time flow of data and to be able to respond There may be significant consequences from bad results There will be much data It will be a different project than the other 9.. EHS MANAGER SUMMARIZES:

15 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. 1.Optimize Controls and Work Practices to improve conditions 2.Defend Spurious Claims 3.Measure projects contribution to real claims 4.Support claims that are not legitimate 5.Create concerns that are not real RISK MANAGEMENT IMPACTS: HOW THIS DATA IS USED

16 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. Landfill reopened after 35 years to support solar farm Hundreds of trucks with demolition/construction debris Odors begin immediately in late 2012 UNCONVENTIONAL CONSTRUCTION

17 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited.

18 RESULTS

19 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. Thousands of notifications >30 ppb sent to hundreds of people 24/7 Successful legal challenge to stop landfill activities Regulators accelerate implementation of permanent remedy Legislation passed in 60 days and the State has taken over the site Projected $60 MM remedy will be paid by the State’s Insurance OUTCOMES

20 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. It’s all about the data Technology no longer limits the information that is available…. What data do we need and want? Need to re-interpret the results! EHS BIG DATA MONITORING SYSTEMS

21 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. Pass/Fail – Exceedances are your Foe! Options Trends Relationships Offsite/Onsite Between Stations Correction Factors INTERPRETING THE DATA - ALERTS AND THRESHOLDS

22 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. PM MIN TWA – ROLLING AVG RELATIONSHIP NOTIFICATIONS

23 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. Industrial Sites Sensitive Receptors Refineries, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sites Hospitals – Indoor Areas of Complaints BIG DATA IN EHS BEYOND CONSTRUCTION

24 Recording of this session via any media type is strictly prohibited. 1.Big Data is being used today in measuring Environmental (EHS) Performance in Construction 2.This data can be used to better manage and optimize performance and reduce risk if these tools are understood and utilized correctly 3.Construction Operations and Management must embrace this fact and make changes to integrate this data in how they make day to day decisions 4.Ultimately big EHS data can be your best friend in construction but the journey requires using this data to realign priorities and make appropriate sustainable changes SUMMARY
