Course Description


This 10 –Day GLOMACS Integrated Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Implementing Hazardous Waste Concepts Training Course will give some details on these various types of contaminants and the new frontiers in eliminating or minimizing these contaminants, the use of effective non-hazardous products in your company and also environmentally acceptable methods of disposal for both hazardous and non-hazardous wastes.


This training course is split into two modules:

MODULE I - Hazardous Waste Management and Pollution

MODULE II - Implementation of Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Management Systems

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a 2-week training course.


  • Learn about the various types of contamination and which ones are more applicable to your company
  • Learn about the relevant environmental treaties dealing with contamination and pollution
  • Learn how to prioritize contamination problems in dealing with contamination and waste management issues in a logical sequence
  • Show and emphasize the close relationship between human health and the environment that’s been directly affected by contamination
  • Discussion of the current methodologies for the cleanup of contaminated soil, ground and surface water, air pollution, construction materials and radioactive materials
  • Perform IMS auditing with the skills and methodology acquired
  • Demonstrate the process-based approach in auditing

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Integrated Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Implementing Hazardous Waste Concepts (Module I and II) Training course will combine presentations with instructor-guided interactive discussions between participants relating to their individual interests. Practical exercises, video material and case studies aiming at stimulating these discussions and providing maximum benefit to the participants will support the formal presentation sessions. Above all, the course leader will make extensive use of case examples and case studies of issues in which he has been personally involved.

Organisational Impact

  • The organization, based on the training received by its employees at the course, will have less cause for concern of real or potential contamination problems at the plant, and this usually results in improved productivity
  • By addressing real or potential contamination problems from the company’s operations, the whole audit management process (system audits, process audits, review audits, surveillance audits, re-registration audits, etc.) will be made easier and less stressful
  • If contamination should occur, reduced healthcare costs, cleanup costs for the organization knowing that contamination issues are fully addressed and managed
  • Enhanced reputation of the organization in the community knowing that there will not be any
  • Increased efficiency and effectiveness, and cost reductions while minimizing the disruption caused by several external audits
  • Commitment to increased performance, employee and customer satisfaction, and continuous improvement
  • Efficiency is gained from less duplication, and it becomes easier to adopt new systems in future
  • An IMS allows management team to create one system that can help to effectively and efficiently deliver your organization’s objectives

Personal Impact

  • Risk Reduction knowledge which will provide lasting benefits both personally and professionally
  • Safer workplace environment
  • Personal psychological advantage of an employee doing his or her part concerning contaminants reduction via “Think Globally, Act Locally”
  • Personal pride in being an employee of an organization that’s fully committed to addressing and managing real or potential contamination issues & to protecting the environment and preventing pollution
