Environmental Compliance Course


Environmental law is complex and imposes a large number of obligations on companies and workers. It’s important for you and your organisation to recognise the need to comply with these laws and to maintain appropriate standards of environmental compliance. Offences carry great penalties and, with managers and directors being personally liable, the exposed risk in this area is huge.

Safetrac’s course on ‘Environmental Compliance’ creates awareness of the potential risks, explores the basics of environmental law and its imposed obligations within the workplace.
