The NEBOSH Environmental Awareness at Work Qualification provides a useful introduction to environmental issues at work. It highlights the role workers can play in improving organisational environmental performance and will aid understanding of environmental impacts and risk control. It meets the training requirement for organisations implementing ISO 14001.
It is accessible to all. No prior knowledge is required and the content is relevant wherever you work around the world. There is also the option to add content relevant to the environmental impacts and issues faced by a company or sector.
The qualification is an ideal first step towards progressing to the NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management, which provides a more extensive and practical understanding of environmental management in the workplace.
Our qualifications are developed based on extensive research with health and safety professionals, employers, professional bodies and regulators to ensure that they remain relevant, rigorous as well as achievable and practical.
You will be assessed on your ability to apply your skills and knowledge to a wide range of issues and how to deliver positive change to a real workplace.
The Environmental Awareness at Work course book has been created by NEBOSH to support the NEBOSH Environmental Awareness at Work Qualification.
Normally one day in length, the course covers basic environmental awareness and practices essential in the workplace. Topics include:
– The meanings of basic environmental terms
– Importance and benefits of sustainable development
– The individual’s role in a certified Environmental Management System (EMS)

The syllabus is mapped to the environmental awareness and management published by Lantra.
