Essential hazardous waste management training

Hazardous waste management involves compliance with additional waste duty of care regulations. If you produce or handle hazardous waste you must ensure it causes no damage or harm. This includes any organisation that is involved in producing, storing, collecting, transporting, recycling or disposal of hazardous waste.

CIWM has three hazardous waste courses that can be attended as scheduled courses or delivered to groups as in-company training.
