This is an attendance based, continuously assessed module. The focus of this module is awareness-building in environmental management, workplace waste minimisation and environmental management systems. Establishing a basis for effective environmental management begins with an understanding of the statutory framework within which a business operates. This leads to the business itself and the responsibilities on both employer and employee to maintain environmental standards. An overview of environmental issues and their potential impacts on the environment, and on the workforce, sets the stage for a study of both physical and managerial control methods. Processes and their potential for hazard and waste in the workplace can then be considered in context. Cleaner production and waste minimisation programmes lead to improvements in processes, compliance with regulations and overall management of the environment.
This is an SCQF Level 9 module and upon successful completion, participants will be awarded 20 credits.
This module will run one day a week over 12 weeks, from 1pm to 4pm.
This module will be delivered by Jan Miller.
