Environmental Safety - 14001

Already on a course? Click 'here' to login.

Across the globe we have all become more aware of the dangers associated with global warming and the contributory factors that cause this. As a minimum, you should find out how environmental legislation affects your firm. At the same time, being environmentally aware can lead to cost savings and give your business a significant edge over your competitors.

Companies across the UK are taking global warming and pollution more seriously and are being responsible and more conscious of how they deal with their own waste and trying to maintain a safer environment to live and work in. Environmental safety is now being standardised for companies and this can be recognised by gaining an ISO 14001 standard. ISO 14001 was first developed in 1996. Minor revisions were made in 2004 to clarify all requirements, and the standard has again been reissued in 2015.

After completing this online training course, it must be stressed that no formal qualification can be gained nor will your establishment gain a 14001 : 2015 standard. This course is here to provide you with guidelines on how to contribute to lower waste in all approaches to help towards gaining a standard of 14001 : 2015 for your establishment.

It's the little things like switching lights off during the day, turn down the heating during summer and if possible use renewable sources instead of scarce materials. It doesn't matter where you work, between us all we need to do more to make the planet a safer and healthier place to live and work in.

This course will teach people the basics of the Lithosphere, Biosphere and know the importance of how improving working practices both at work and home we can improve carbon emissions. Where effective use of energy can be a vital way in battling global warming. If we, together work on improving processes that we do at home and work, then we can help the current issues that lie with the Earth itself.
