Waste Duty of Care Training Course
This waste training course describes what you need to do by explaining the core duty of care requirements. You will then take a closer look into the additional requirements for handling waste in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Illegal waste activity costs the UK economy around £600 million every year. If you handle, dispose of, deal or broker waste you have a duty of care to make sure you do not cause damage to human health or the environment.
Each of the four UK nations has its own rules on how to comply with duty of care requirements. However, the core message is the same. You must make sure that waste is handled and recycled or disposed of properly without causing harm.
Any employee can complete this course by reading or listening to each lesson. Take it at your own pace – we’ll track your progress so you can complete it in your own time.
