Some of the leading causes of environmental pollution include improper storage of hazardous chemicals (both goods and wastes), an incompatible inspection of containment materials, the use of hazardous products when non-hazardous products are available, and insufficient staff training. Contamination can come in many forms like water, land, air, radioactive, food, noise, molds, odor, construction, vibration, etc. Invariably, if these contaminants are not properly dealt with, they will result in pollution and certain situations serious health problems.

Hazardous Waste Management & Pollution Prevention training course will give details on the various types of contaminants and the new frontiers in eliminating or minimizing these contaminants, using effective non-hazardous products in your company, and also environmentally acceptable methods of disposal for both hazardous and non-hazardous wastes. Participants will learn how to address and manage real or potential contamination issues, resulting in improved productivity. This program will highlight the economic side of reducing and preventing emissions and associated tangible benefits.

ISO 14001:2018  specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance. ISO 14001:2018 is intended for use by an organization seeking to manage its environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner that contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability.

ISO 14001:2018 helps an organization achieve the intended outcomes of its environmental management system, which provide value for the environment, the organization itself, and interested parties. Consistent with the organization’s environmental policy, the intended outcomes of an environmental management system include:

  • enhancement of environmental performance;
  • fulfilment of compliance obligations;
  • achievement of environmental objectives.

ISO 14001:2018 is applicable to any organization, regardless of size, type, and nature, and applies to the environmental aspects of its activities, products, and services that the organization determines it can either control or influence considering a life cycle perspective. ISO 14001:2018 does not state specific environmental performance criteria.

ISO 14001:2018 can be used in whole or in part to systematically improve environmental management. Claims of conformity to ISO 14001:2018, however, are not acceptable unless all its requirements are incorporated into an organization’s environmental management system and fulfilled without exclusion.
