Environmental impacts will arise at any construction project,
irrespective of the location, size or nature of the development, and
have the potential to affect the immediate neighbour, and also the
natural and built environment. Impacts can take many forms, such as
noise or pollution, and can affect surrounding flora and fauna. Good
environmental practice enables these issues to be managed positively.
The task of preventing impacts or minimising the risk of potential
impacts is becoming increasingly the responsibility of site-based staff.
This greater accountability at site level demands higher standards of
environmental awareness and education by all site staff. Though training
and using experienced staff, environmental issues can be effectively
managed with the speed and urgency that is often required.
This CIRIA IEMA approved training course will help you to understand the
implications of updated environmental legislation and how the
application of good practice will potentially save time, money, adverse
publicity and the possibility of litigation.
