Onsite guidance for Site Waste Management Plans
Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs) have been a legal requirement for projects over £300,000 in England since April 2008. They are also mandatory within the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM. The client has a legal responsibility in terms of preparing a SWMP and the principal contractor for implementation. Good procedures and onsite waste activities are vital to the success of a SWMP and for embedding SWMPs within a company. Added benefits can include cost savings, improved productivity and health and safety and positive PR as well as a reduced environmental impact.
BRE has developed a bespoke range of courses for specific roles within construction projects which are required to prepare, implement and review a SWMP. BRE has worked with many contractors to improve waste management and implement strategies and has an excellent understanding of SWMPs.
This event, designed specifically for those working onsite (e.g. site managers, foreman), will provide delegates with a full understanding of SWMPs and the practicalities of implementation onsite. This will include issues such as waste measurement and monitoring, storage of materials, waste equipment, waste contractor requirements, waste champions, training and communication. Practical workshops and case studies will be used along with a practical session on BRE's web-based SMARTWaste Plan tool.
