Malaysian Training Module Layout

Module 1: Malaysian Rules & Regulations

The purpose of this module is to ensure inspectors understand the regulatory requirements and how they are applicable to inspections.

Items for this module will include (but not limited to):
  • DID Stormwater Management Submission Checklist
  • NREB Sarawak & EPD Sabah
  • EIA EQA 1974 (Amendment 2011) & EIA Order 2015
  • DOE Environmental Mainstreaming + GSR
  • DOE EIA‐LDP2M2 BMP Inspection Checklist

Module 2: Background of an Inspector

In this module, participants will learn the importance of what is recommended for an inspector’s background and how this will help them keep a site in compliance with regulatory requirements. Additionally, participants will see how assessing past experiences will improve the inspection process. Participants will also have the chance to review an Erosion and Sediment Control Plan (ESCP), including a report and drawings.

Items for this Module will include (but not limited to):
  • Definitions: Sediment vs. Erosion
  • Topographic Assessments: Reading a map
  • Hydrology: Hydrographs and sedigraphs
  • Polymers: Anionic vs. cationic
  • Background Requirements
  • Ethics: MY‐CISEC’s Code
  • Classroom Example ESCP

Module 3: BMPs:

This module will provide the necessary tools for inspecting BMPs found on land development, vertical/big box construction, and linear projects. Participants will learn about inspecting installed sediment and erosion control measures, whether the BMPs are functioning in a correct manner, and assess BMP limitations. In addition, information will be provided on inspecting storage areas where potential pollution problems may occur and assessing whether new BMPs need to be added or whether existing structures can be removed.

Items for this Module will include (but not limited to):
  • Writing Inspection and Corrective Action Reports
  • Inspecting Commonly Found BMPs on Construction Sites:
  • Barriers
  • Sediment Containment Systems
  • Stabilized Construction Entrances
  • Erosion Control BMPs
  • Inspecting Other Important BMPs:
  • Polymer Systems
  • Wind Erosion BMPs
  • Concrete Washouts
  • Hazardous Waste Sites

Module 4: Conducting Construction Site Inspections

This module covers the basic duties of an inspector by conducting a “virtual” tour of a construction site. Participants will reinforce their role and responsibilities as inspectors to meet regulatory requirements. The module will include “hands‐on” exercises on documenting, communicating, reading SWPPPs and S&EC plans, writing reports, interacting with fellow participants, and assessing what to look for on a construction site.

Items for this Module will include (but not limited to):
  •  Inspection Requirements
  • Inspection Reports
  • Conducting “Virtual” Site Inspections:
  • Before Construction and During Grading
  • During Construction
