This module has been designed to give you a sound understanding of the means by which UK environmental law is devised and implemented. This will provide you with an appreciation of how the law is likely to affect your business. You will also learn about the specific environmental laws relating to each of the three environmental media: land, air and water.
Through undertaking practical exercises, you will have a better understanding of which environmental laws currently, and will potentially affect your companies operations, and in turn, will be able to develop methods by which your company can keep up to date with the relevant legislation to your site and operations. This will ensure compliance with your existing or planned Environmental Management System (if applicable), or will simply ensure peace of mind and avoid hefty fines.
