Basic Environmental Management Principles For Health and Safety Practitioners
Session 1 Preview
Occupational health and safety practitioners are tasked with protecting the life and health of workers, visitors and all persons that may be affected by the activities of the organization. Unfortunately, it is often impossible to limit the impact of the operations and activities to the boundaries controlled by that organization.
This short course in Basic Environmental Management for Health and Safety Practitioners is designed to introduce the processes, practices and procedures that enable an organization to reduce its environmental impacts and comply with relevant environmental legislation and rules.
The course is delivered asynchronously and synchronously. You can view the video recordings (5+ hours of video recordings) at your own pace and if you are comfortable you can sit the exam to receive a certificate. Premium membership is included with this course.
