This course focuses on the current practices and policies pertaining to the development, implementation and maintenance of Environmental Management Systems (EMS) in an organization. The International Standard Organization (ISO) will be examined and case studies will be used to highlight the key factors involved with EMS implementation. The process of assessing environmental impacts and aspects and implementing continuous improvement measures will be addressed. Comparable health and safety management systems will be examined to reinforce management system concepts.
Diploma and First Degree (Waiver: High School (O’Level) with minimum of 2 years work experience in a related field can apply).
