Course – Environmental Legislation Awareness (Online)
Introduction to Environmental Legislation Awareness Course
This intensive one-day course is designed to equip delegates with an appreciation and understanding of the legislative structure across the UK, key areas of environmental legislation and regulations and how these are typically enforced.
No company or organisation can afford to neglect the law, but many companies still do not realise the full extent of their obligations under environmental legislation. Lack of knowledge is no protection for either a company or an individual. This course is essential for those companies who are in the process of setting up an ISO 14001 or EMAS certified environmental management system and needing to build a Legal Register and need some guidance.
1 Day, 09.00 – 16.30
