The Duty of Care has changed significantly over the last few years and it’s essential that staff fully understand the obligations and the risks.
A failure to comply with waste regulations can result in large fines and in some cases even imprisonment. This video explains the roles of all those in the waste chain from waste producer to waste manager. It also includes newer requirements such as the waste hierarchy, how waste should be managed and the problems to avoid.
Ideally suited for use in training sessions, toolbox talks or one-to-one on your intranet. It cuts through the legal jargon to help train staff at all levels from the boardroom to the shop floor.
It’s a cost effective training tool that can be used again and again.
It will help to encourage staff to reduce the impact of waste on the environment and the risks to your business.
In this video we visit factories, reprocessing facilities and landfill sites and show how fly-tippers operate. Use it at meetings, seminars in the boardroom, training room or the staff canteen, for toolbox talks or across your intranet.
If only part of this information packed video applies to your operations it could save you the cost many times over in fines and damage to your company reputation. Fly-tipping and illegal waste disposal costs millions in clean up costs every year – the waste has to come from somewhere – can you be sure it won’t come from your company. If it does you could be held legally responsible.
A Way With Waste introduces the main requirements of the duty of care but if you need to go into more detail such as the use of EWC / LoW codes then you need this companion PowerPoint. For audiences that are completely new to the duty of care you can show the video as an introduction and then drive home the main learning points with this flexible presentation.
