An informative and interesting course, I have learned a lot and enjoyed the classroom activities. All trainers were great, helpful, enthusiastic, informative and friendly.
This course is an introduction to Environmental Management within the workplace, assessed by a short multiple choice assessment set by NEBOSH. The successful completion leads to NEBOSH Environmental Awareness at Work Award. This course provides an excellent introduction to the principles of environment management, plus specific environment concerns such as noise, waste, water, energy and emergency procedures.
Environmental Legislation is constantly evolving and requires a whole team approach to ensure compliance and avoid fines, prosecutions and civil claims. There are also many financial benefits to an organisation which manages their environmental impacts effectively through cost saving, increased PR and gaining contracts.
What does the course cover?
The course is held over a minimum of one day but it can be tailor made to suit your organisation for up to 3 days to cover more detail on topics relevant to your company.

- Environmental management system’s main components and the certification process
- Principles and practice of impact (risk) assessments
- Air pollution

Who is the course suitable for?
This course is designed to provide a good introduction to environmental issues and is suitable for employees of all levels, with employees, supervisors and senior managers all benefiting from this broad based but comprehensive programme. It has a multiple choice end assessment making it suitable for those with differing learning abilities and language skills.
We can run this course for 4-12 employees and will need a minimum of six weeks notice to register the assessment with Nebosh.
Delegates are provided with a course book to support the tutorials and to act as a useful reference guide when back in the workplace.
