Why You Should Attend

Contaminated & Hazardous Waste 2019

Hazardous and contaminated waste is waste that poses a potential threat to the health and safety of the employees, the public, and environment. In the Hazardous Waste in Australia 2017 report, Australia generated 5.6 million tonnes of hazardous waste in 2014-15 with an annual increase of 9% on average 5 years before. In the recent years, waste management costs have increased due to a rise in production rates and an increase in landfill levy by the government to promote environmental sustainability.

marcus evans Contaminated & Hazardous Waste 2019 focuses on managing hazardous waste across supply chain, waste storage, and labelling, contamination prevention, ISO14001, zero landfill policy and more. Participants will come from a wide range of industries with firsthand experience and knowledge in hazardous waste management, health, safety and environmental sustainability.

This conference features two half-day workshops on workplace zero harm strategy to reinforce safety and health of employees, and strategy implementation to meet WHS, storage and logistics requirements.
