The paper presents issues related to the failure of construction elements on landfills. The study investigates threats deriving from landfills, which are the result of emergency events. It reviews landfill failures of different types, showing how they may affect the natural environment, human health and safety. The research is aimed at identifying the causes of these events and at presenting the schedule of remedial works and methods of removing the effects of failures occurring in a selected landfill. Based on the analysis, the use of the geophysical testing method to identify the origin and extent of the failure has been demonstrated as a method crucial for the design of repair works.
