Health and safety training including construction, fire safety and environmental courses. Fully accredited by NEBOSH, IOSH, City and Guilds and ConstructionSkills

Environmental Health and Safety

By undertaking environmental health and safety training and gaining qualifications such as the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate or the NEBOSH Environmental Diploma, delegates 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. (Related Link: To read more about why you shouldn't put off health and safety training, click here).

The majority of accredited health and safety courses such as the NEBOSH General Certificate, CITB/ConstructionSkills SMSTS and IOSH Managing Safely courses contain some environmental elements and cover issues regarding the protection of the environment. Also, the general scope of environmental health and safety means many other bespoke topics come under the environmental safety umbrella, such as CoSHH training which covers the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH), which can cause serious damage to the local environment if it gets into the atmosphere, waterways etc.

Waste is a general term which generally is applied to items or substances which need to be disposed of as no other use can be found for it. Not only is their potential for this to damage the environment itself, but disposing of waste when it could be recycled or re-used means further natural resources need to be consumed in order to make a brand new product from scratch.

Air Pollution

Air pollution refers to harmful gases and particulates which are released into the air and can damage the health and wellbeing of all living creatures exposed to it and dependent upon the air for respiration.

Water Pollution

Water is essential to sustain life; whether it is plant, animal or human. As such, any pollution of water can have serious detrimental effects for life. For more information and links to useful internal pages on water pollution, please click here.


Energy generation relies on a fuel source of some kind, some of which is clean and not dependent upon finite resources, although they can be controversial and have other negative impacts. However some of these fuels give off gases and pollutants during the process which are detrimental to health and damaging for the planet.

    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.
