Right Waste Right Place: Duty of Care in the Construction Sector
Anyone who produces, treats, disposes, moves ot arranges the movement of waste has a legal 'Duty of Care' to ensure that waste is managed properly.
Complying with the Duty of Care is vital to ensure your own companys compliance with the law, as well as to ensure that your waste is transferred to someone who will also manage and handle it correctly.
This free, interactive and practical seminar will focus on the specific requirements of Duty of Care for the construction sector and will provide the views of the regulator, the waste producer and lawyers.
The seminar will cover waste exemptions, permitting, waste classifications as well as practical examples of the complexities of Duty of Care when dealing with construction waste.
If you work in or are involved with the construction sector, this seminar will help you to understand your responsibilities and identify how you can comply with the technical and legal requirements. A question and answer session will give you the opportunity to pose questions to the experts.
