Environmental Management for Construction Site Managers, Supervisors and Representatives
The Environment is defined as
“living things, their physical, biological and social surroundings and interactions between all of these” (Environmental Protection Act 1986)
Environmental Management is broadly defined as
“An attempt to control human impact on and interaction with the environment in order to preserve natural resources”
Environmental management is used in all industries across the world and education and training on environmental matters is generally approached on an even broader level, often leaving the audience with a general understanding rather than specific knowledge for pro-active and efficient management very often required in today’s industries.
Environmental Site Services specialises in providing training for the construction industry in Australia. Our training is designed to inform managers and supervisors of their environmental obligations and provide an overview on the common environmental risks, control measures and opportunities associated with construction projects. Our aim: to raise environmental awareness of site managers and supervisors who have day-to-day responsibilities for environmental management on construction sites. The course will help identify issues before they arise and plan ahead to avoid costly program delays and incidents.
