Environmental Health and Safety Courses
Managing your environmental impact
With global warming and climate change now receiving more media coverage than ever before, organisations are paying closer attention to how their operations impact the environment, and how they themselves are viewed by the public and current/potential customers.
Not only are there expensive legal and clean-up costs associated with accidents that pollute the environment, but companies risk having their brand name/image impacted if they are heavy polluters or environmentally unfriendly. With businesses spending vast sums on advertising and promoting themselves, they should try and avoid any negative press at all costs. Many firms can also use the adoption of new environmentally-friendly working practices as an advertising tool to boost their corporate image. And even for those who care more about money than the planet, some environmental practices such as the reduction of packaging or reducing energy consumption can lead to substantial cost savings.
Environmental health and safety training
By undertaking environmental health and safety training courses, those attending gain a key understanding of how their actions and business practices affect the environment. They will also have a greater awareness of the potential consequences of failing to adhere to any environmental safety controls that are in place in order to prevent accidents which could negatively impact the environment.
Workers and managers also need to be aware of all environmental health and safety legislation which affects their organisation and operations. The cost of legal proceedings and fines for failing to prevent an environmental accident have the potential to ruin a company, so environmental health and safety training is crucial to make sure such an accident never occurs.
Need an Accredited Course?
Along with designing bespoke health and safety training programmes, we also run the accredited NEBOSH, IOSH and ConstructionSkills (CSkills) health and safety courses as open courses at selected venues across the UK, as well as in-house for those companies who have a number of employees requiring the training, as it will be much more cost effective than sending them all onto a scheduled open course.
