Why Attend?

“The course provides practical advice which people can go away and instantly apply – whether you have four or 40 years’ experience, there was still something new to learn.” –  Mike Summersgill, Former President of CIWEM (Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management).

Many construction firms expose themselves to potentially crippling fines (up to £3 million) under the newly published sentencing guidelines because they are not fully aware of the environment risk posed by construction activities.

The course provides site staff with a basic understanding of everything they need to know, including a brief introduction to the law, planning the works to avoid water pollution and how to best handle silty water and high pH concrete washwater.
