Environmental Awareness Training
The Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Environment Act 1995 state that anybody who produces, handles, or disposes of waste must ensure it’s done so safely & properly. Businesses that do not comply can be given fines or even prison sentences. Therefore, it is essential that all employees understand their responsibilities under current legislation.
This online training course gives the user an understanding about the impact that workplaces have on the environment, as well as teaching them how they can reduce their impact on the environment as an individual.
In this course you will learn:
- What climate change is, its causes and effects, and the impact of humanity on the rest of the world.
- How workplaces contribute to environmental changes.
- How you can reduce your impact on the environment, as an individual, and as part of an organisation.
This course consists of three sections:
Section 1: global change
Section 1 looks at what we mean when we say ‘the environment’, and the variety of factors that we know are impacting it. It includes biodiversity, the effects of human industry, and the science of climate change.
Section 2: how workplaces are affecting the environment
Section 2 explains how workplaces in the UK contribute to its carbon footprint through waste and poor resource management. It discusses the changes that can be made to reduce these negative effects, including familiar measures like recycling.
Section 3: how individuals can improve their carbon footprint
Section 3 focuses on individual impact and the ways in which you can personally contribute to a greener world by making small changes to drastically reduce waste and carbon emissions.
