Duty of Care - Virtual Training Programme

Duty of Care - Virtual Training Programme

Waste Duty of Care applies to everyone who handles wastes, whether as a producer, carrier or waste management organisation. This virtual training programme explores these obligations and how to comply with the Duty of Care Code of Practice.

The programme gives a good opportunity to share a range of ideas and best practice examples from both tutors and others working in a variety of settings.

What will I learn on the course?

The course is split into two interactive 3-hour sessions with a self-learning exercise between the two sessions, providing plenty of opportunity for delegates to become active participants in the knowledge-gaining process.

At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the key reasons why we have Duty of Care,
  • Understand why the producer plays a fundamental role,
  • Be aware of the current legislative requirements and what this means in practice,
  • Appreciate how your Duty of Care obligations relate to other controls,
  • Be familiar with the Statutory Code of Practice,
  • Know how to complete a Waste Transfer /Information Note,
  • Be familiar with various sources of information including public registers,
  • Understand the role of auditing in helping to comply with your obligations,
