Small Things Make The Difference in Preventing Pollution

“Cross-pollination” of ideas learnt in other industries can be the inspiration for success in preventing pollution and avoiding environmental damage (including heavy fines).

Lessons learnt in the aid/relief sector are readily applicable to contamination incidents when people become stressed and panic. Training, organisation and response equipment are paramount for a successful and safe outcome.

The speaker will focus on proven design methodology to assist the responders.
