Minimising Waste

Course Overview

Resources are precious to any business because they are a physical representation of money that has been spent or invested. Therefore, producing large amounts of waste is equivalent to throwing bags of money into the bin, and it also signals that the organisation isn’t working as efficiently as it could be. Minimising Waste explores the main types of waste that companies produces, the reasons for them, and how they can be minimised. If you’re a manager, you’re responsible for putting measures in place to reduce the waste your business creates and for spreading awareness of waste amongst your staff and colleagues. This e-learning course shows you how to do this and more so that your organisation can cut waste down and become more cost-effective.

Minimising Waste is suitable for anyone who is responsible for the activities of staff, such as managers and team leaders, who want to work more efficiently to avoid waste and therefore reduce business costs.
