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.
