The EssentialSkillz Environmental Awareness online training discusses the importance of resource efficiency (eg the use of water and electricity) in the workplace and wider environmental risks, eg global warming, greenhouse gases, sustainability, air pollution, water pollution and disposal of waste. The Environmental Awareness training looks at the responsibilities of both organisations and individuals as well as briefly covering environmental legislation and environmental management systems. The online course focuses on the waste hierarchy and measures individuals can implement to help use resources more efficiently and reduce waste.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Environmental Awareness training can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation that may be in place, all at no extra cost.
