We all know that our environment is under threat and that changes must be made to protect it. In this Environmental Awareness training programme, we make it clear that it’s not just big companies that have a responsibility to make changes - or indeed companies that deal with hazardous materials or waste disposal - it's something that concerns absolutely all of us.

This programme looks at the problems our environment is facing. It looks at our responsibilities and wider environmental awareness, as well as covering the various legislation that relates to environmental responsibility for organisations of all types and sizes.

Why is this training important?


It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 (as amended in 2008) and the Environment Act 1995 say that anyone who produces, handles or disposes of waste must make sure it’s done properly and safely. Businesses and households that don’t comply can be given fines or even prison sentences. The Control of Pollution Act 1974 and its 1989 Amendment regulate waste transportation and disposal, water pollution, air pollution and noise pollution, with fines for non-compliance. The EU Emissions Trading Scheme covers 31 countries. It limits the total amount of certain greenhouse gases that factories, power plants and airlines are allowed to emit, and lets companies buy, sell or trade their emission allowances.

It shall be a defence for a person charged under this act to prove: a) that he took all reasonable precautions and exercised all due diligence to to avoid the commission of the offence; or b) that he acted under instructions from his employer and neither knew nor had reason to suppose that the acts done by him constituted a contravention of [the Environmental Protection Act].
