||SQT Training Ltd - est. 1989 - offers an
extensive range of high-quality Environmental Training
courses, presented by TMS Consultancy Ltd. TMS bring to
every course, not only the latest environmental issues
facing companies, but years of solid hands-on experience
gained from a wide variety of industries.
TMS Consultancy is accredited to ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and OHSAS
18001. They have assisted a large number of companies in achieving
registration to these standards.
Following the introduction of ISO 14001:2004, most organisations
will find that they need to adjust their environmental management
system. As of May this year, only the new version of the standard
will be used in audits - and, in less than twelve months,
any certificates issued in respect of ISO 14001:1996 will
be invalid. This issue is being addressed by SQT Training
in a half-day - ISO 14001:2004 Overview - course which will
be held in October.
The course is aimed specifically at individuals already familiar
with ISO 14001:1996 - and at organisations accredited to that
standard. The course will enable participants to evaluate
and modify their existing ISO 14001 certified environmental
management systems in order to comply with ISO 14001:2004
and to understand the detailed implications and general thrust
of the changes to the new ISO 14001 standard.
All SQT Environmental courses now reflect the new ISO 14001
standard. Among the existing courses on offer, is the very
popular 5 day Environmental Auditing course - both Foundation
and Advanced level. The auditing courses are extremely well
designed, very comprehensive and are IEMA (The Institute of
Environmental Management and Assessment) approved. In addition,
the courses include a live audit, which proves an invaluable
experience to delegates.
Other topical one-day courses available, include
- Implementation of ISO 14001;
- Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment;
- Environmental Legislation
- Spillage Control
- Chemical Risk Assessment - and
- Waste Management.
One course which has proved extremely popular is 'Energy
Management / Auditing' - which focuses on the issues surrounding
energy management in buildings. This issue is increasingly
important for companies from both a financial and environmental
perspective - with factors such as registration, risk management
and environmental responsibility to consider.
Another course which has attracted considerable interest
is 'ATEX Safety Health and Welfare at Work (Explosive Atmospheres
Regulations 2003)' course - which covers the requirement to
conduct risk assessments on explosive atmospheres containing
solvents and/or dust.
All of these courses are available in the SQT July - December
Course Calendar, which has just been released (copies available
from SQT on request). All public Environmental courses can
also be run on-site and tailored to the client's specific
