Sustainable Waste Management

25th July 2019

As with all waste sites operating under an Environmental Agency (EA) permit, there are 2 key factors to consider: Is your site run by a technically competent manager? Are the operatives on your site experienced to work on a waste site? 

The answer must be yes! Each waste management site operates in its own way with its own permit however, they all run under the same rules and if not controlled effectively, accident could occur. 

Recent figures from the HSE show that the waste sector is increasing in ill-health impacts and workplace accidents, but could this be better monitored and reduced with more of the correctly trained personnel on site? 

This is where the newest qualification to our offering comes into action: the WAMITAB Level 2 Certificate for Sustainable Waste Management Operatives. 

The qualification is ideal for people seeking entry into the waste and resource management industry or those working in the industry that require evidence of their competence. 

The qualification can be tailored to meet the requirements of specific job roles both within the sector or within the organisation and helps to support the sector to overcome significant skills gaps that have been raised over the recent years. 

Operators on site must have the knowledge to accept, validate, handle and load different types of waste whilst managing the equipment correctly to ensure maximum safety and efficiency. The level 2 qualification will ensure that this is communicated and delivered including units covering aspects such as working with others and health, safety and emergency procedures within the industry to equip learners with the knowledge required to work effectively within the tole and be aware of key information associated to the industry.
