4t Consultants has developed a Landfill Waste and Environmental Management Course suitable for Council waste management and landfill operators.

The aim of the course is to extend the knowledge and understanding of existing waste employees, so they have a greater understanding of their individual environmental and safety responsibilities and requirements within their daily tasks.

The 1x day course can be conducted at Council premises, and can be tailored for a specific Council by incorporating details of their specific waste management sites. H,owever with the ability to customize the course to include site specific details, 4T are in the process of converting the course to an online format. This will enable Councils that cover very large areas to offer current training to all employees at times that best suit each location.

Modules covered include:

  • Waste Management Principals
  • Environmental Management
  • Legislation and Standards
  • Workplace Health and Safety
  • General Landfill Management
  • Daily Landfill Operations (Council or site specific practices / policies can be included here)
  • Daily Considerations

Students will be required to pass with a minimum of 80% across all quizzes. This pass grade can be adjusted to suit each Council.
