This course includes the most common hazards that you need to be aware of to protect the environment while at work. The training provides an overview of the hazards and trains in safe practice.
The hazards that are covered include vegetation management and clearing, working around flora and fauna and protected species, Aboriginal cultural heritage requirements for sites and artifacts, ground disturbance, chemical spills, weed control, controlling dust and monitoring air quality, and managing waste.
The training is assessed using the hierarchy of hazard controls. Users are required to select the control and critical control measures with all selections available in the user reports accessed on the Tap into Safety Platform.
