CIRIA has gained approval from the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) for its Environmental good practice training course.
Good environmental practice ensures that the impact of construction on the surrounding environment and neighbours are managed positively. Impacts can take one of many different forms, including water, air, or noise pollution. Clients, their professional advisors, contractors and the whole construction supply chain all have responsibilities for environmental management.
The nature of environmental legislation is always changing and this, together with changes in good practice, makes training on environmental issues relevant for all levels of construction experience.
The Environmental good practice training course, based on CIRIA's Environmental good practice on site guide (third edition) (C692), provides practical guidance about managing construction sites to control environmental impacts. The course promotes sustainable development through improved environmental practice and performance.
The IEMA Approved Environmental good practice training course is offered at various times and locations in the UK throughout the year, as well as being available as an in-house course. Upcoming courses will take place on June 14, 2011 in Birmingham, July 19 in London and September 19 in Manchester.
