 A Way With Waste - The Duty of Care

This 20 minute video gives an overview of the main requirements of the legislation using live action, graphics and cartoon characters. Use it to introduce the subject and open your training sessions.

This resource has been produced to support Duty of Care training presentations.


The package is designed to be flexible and can be tailored to fit your individual business and training needs.

It contains a PowerPoint Presentation, a script to accompany the presentation, Trainers Tips, and a Tool Box of accessories to enhance your training course.

Depending on your requirements, you can use it straight from the box or split and modify the content to suit your audience.

The structure and trainer support notes have been developed from several years experience during training delivery to audiences in industry using similar training materials.

The presentation looks at the Duty of Care from the perspective of the waste producer and introduces the main requirements.

Recent updates and changes featured in this PowerPoint include:

The presentation also covers:

Over 50 slides to choose from

Whether you are in the early stages of training new recruits or running a refresher course, the PowerPoint framework can be used to deliver a presentation in its existing form or modified to suit your individual requirements. It is doubtful that you will need all the information in this framework but we felt it would be easier for the user to delete sections rather than reassemble sets of discrete modules.

Copy the framework to your hard drive, work through the slides and the text and remove those elements that are not relevant, add your own text and modify the existing text slides as necessary.

Learning points have been embedded in the script to assist the presenter, however you may prefer to add your own and direct the audience to those that are the most relevant to your organisation and aligned to your training needs.

You will probably have your own preferences and experiences that influence how you will deliver this package. Your audiences may vary from the boardroom to the production line - with a whole day's training available for one group and only ten minutes for a tool box talk for another - so we have made this package as flexible as possible.

As there have been several changes to the Duty of Care over the years such as the introduction of new Codes of Practice, the requirement for the use of EWC / LoW codes, related supplementary legislation and the advent of EDOCs, it seems timely to re-visit and refresh Duty of Care training.
