Introduction

Improper storage of hazardous chemicals- both products and wastes-incompatible inspection of containment materials, using hazardous products when non-hazardous products are available and inadequate training of staff are some of the leading causes of environmental contamination. Contamination can come in many forms- Some examples of contamination are ground and surface water, land, air, radioactive, food, noise, molds, odor, construction, vibration. etc and invariably, if these contaminants are not properly dealt with, will result in pollution and in certain situations serious health problems. This five day course will give some details on these various types of contaminants and the new frontiers in eliminating or minimising these contaminants, the use of effective non-hazardous products in your company and also environmentally acceptable methods of disposal for both hazardous and non-hazardous wastes.
