Industrial Waste Management and Sanitation

Pretoria
22 January to 2 February
Overview: 

Industrial Waste Management and Sanitation management has an objective designed to reduce contamination natural resources and public health risks of exposure to this contamination from selected industrial waste properly or improperly disposed. The components of this training looks at the detailed design, construction, and supervision for the remediation of disposal sites, including through the following measures: slope and dam stabilization; coverage; containment cells; in-site encapsulation; re-shaping; re-vegetation; drainage and other water management investments including groundwater management measures, if needed; and removal (including export) of hazardous and non-hazardous waste.

Delegates will be exposed to managing future industrial hazardous waste generation in a manner compliant with legislation, and exploring options for developing infrastructure for industrial hazardous waste disposal and sanitation at the national level. Delegates will tackle issues of Sanitation service provision and supporting authorities to create and establish an enabling environment for Water and Sanitation sustainability

Target Audience: 

The course is designed for Industrial Waste and Sanitation Management Officers, Environmental consultants, Waste Management contractors, Landfill operators and supervisors, Laboratory technicians and Consultants’ delisting waste

Course Outcomes: 

Upon completing this workshop, the delegates should be able to:

  • Institute measures to prevent pollution and ecological degradation due to industrial waste and provide detailed steps to protect against impacts to environment
  • Identify methods and put in place targets for waste minimisation through waste reduction, re-use, recycling and recovery
  • identification of hazardous substances and identification of opportunities to reduced or phase out use of these substances from production processes and products;
  • Mechanisms for informing the public of the impact of the waste generating products andpackaging on the environment, addressing extended producer responsibility (EPR);
  • Methods for monitoring and reporting details of how the waste implementation plan will be monitored and scope of reporting
  • Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation, how to deliver sustainable inclusive services
