Praxis42 Launches Environmental Awareness Module Wednesday 27 June 2007 PDF Print Praxis42 Launches Environmental Awareness Module New training module helps organisations understand the environmental issues they face and how to reduce their impact Praxis42, a leading health and safety consultancy, has launched a new online training module, covering corporate environmental issues. Environmental Awareness will explain the main issues in today’s environmental debates, how these are impacting upon the environment and what can be done in the workplace to improve an organisation’s environmental performance. Estelle Hook, Environment Manager at Praxis42 said: “Global warming, greenhouse gases and carbon footprints are now daily news items, making the environment an essential item on any company’s agenda, both as a corporate responsibility and sustainability issue. However, it is a complex subject and many organisations have little knowledge of how to improve their own performance or where to go for help and advice. That is why this module should prove so invaluable in helping employees understand their obligations and effectively control the risks which may impact upon the environment.” The new Environmental Awareness module from Praxis42 will explain the main issues that impact the environment and what governments, agencies and individuals are doing to reduce these risks. It will provide a good working knowledge of environmental issues, explain how actions at work can affect performance and what they can do to reduce environmental impacts. It can be delivered online or through a computer network to each trainee at their computer or other device. The training can be completed at their own pace. Estelle continued: “Impacts on the environment can, and are, being reduced where there is a desire for change. The main theme of this module is that by improving environmental awareness, everyone in the organisation can contribute to a significant reduction in harmful impacts and play a positive role in the future of their organisation’s environmental performance and of our environment.” Environmental Awareness covers key issues including waste, energy, air emissions, travel and noise. It also provides an overview of the international environmental management system standard, ISO14001. Trainee progress is checked at the end of each section with a self assessment form and successful trainees are issued with a course certificate. It can also be linked into a learning management system, called eSP. Praxis42 is fast becoming a key figure in the health, safety and environmental sector, providing a range of essential services, training and eLearning courses.
