Control of water pollution from construction sites - guide to good practice (SP156)

Good water management is a key factor in ensuring the sustainability of any construction site. The aim of these training materials is to inform construction site staff about protecting the water environment and thus reduce the number of pollution incidents. This will provide cost benefits for the construction industry, improved environmental awareness and sustainability at construction sites. This pack summarises best practice and can be used by any size of company. The pack provides everything needed to run brief or more detailed training sessions. There is no need for an external trainer - any delegated person such as a site supervisor, foreman or environmental manager can hold the training session using these training materials. The pack includes:

  • Table-top presentation. This 32 page presentation book is intended for use as a site induction or specific training course, which reflects the general construction environment.
  • Nine toolbox talks. These can be used to train site operatives and as refresher training, and can be integrated into a programme of safety and environmental talks throughout a construction project.
  • 12 laminated guidance sheets with checklists. The sheets are pre-punched to allow easy filing and retrieval from a ring binder. The checklists can be photocopied for regular use on site.
  • CD-Rom. This contains the full set of guidance sheets, toolbox talks, table-top presentation and training notes as PDF files for printing. It also contains a poster that can be printed and placed on a suitable notice board. ISBN: 978-0-86017-807-1
