Environment, Fire Safety & chemical management training

Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) is a key element of SMETA audit , but also is vital for a company’s own management system which could help provide a safe working environment for employees. This can also help companies understand the environmental impact which would be an emerging agenda in the local market. This series of EHS training will help companies (buyers or suppliers) to identify the risk, understand the local law/regulation and embed the best practices into daily operation.
