EMS Deliver NEBOSH Award in Environmental Awareness at Work to ADM Cocoa
The new NEBOSH Award for Environmental Awareness at Work introduced the ADM Cocoa workforce to identify environmental issues and the role they play in improving organisational environmental performance.
ADM (Archer Daniels Midland Company) is one of the largest agricultural processors and ingredient providers in the world. ADM Cocoa forms part of the larger ADM Group.
The NEBOSH Award in Environmental Awareness at Work provided employees from ADM Cocoa with an enhanced knowledge of environmental impact management and awareness. After the success of the Awareness at Work qualification, ADM Cocoa decided to offer members of staff the opportunity to study for the longer 5-day NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management.
As ADM is a world-leading agricultural processor, it is important to maintain their commitment to sustainable practice and environmental responsibility. ADM view themselves as pioneers of sustainability within the industry. As the company continues to grow, they have set themselves ambitious sustainability goals. To achieve these, it is paramount for employees to be aware of their environmental responsibilities. When the Environmental Awareness at Work qualification was first added to the family of NEBOSH courses ADM Cocoa were one of the first companies to sign up.
The NEBOSH Award in Environmental Awareness at Work is designed to offer delegates an introductory overview of environmental impact management and awareness. It is also designed to offer delegates an introductory overview of environmental impact management and awareness. It is also designed as a stepping stone to support with their environmental management systems such as ISO 14001. EMS successfully delivered NEBOSH award to employees from both production and food hygiene departments. All the delegates successfully completed the course.
NEBOSH sits right at the top of the pile for qualifications. They are really good quality. The idea behind the NEBOSH Environmental Awareness at Work qualification was to get people to understand their impacts, particularly with energy usage, our packaging materials, waste and so on. We've immediately seen that our employees are being more proactive. They're also coming forward with ideas of their own. Altogether, it's proving very positive and given everyone a more structured approach.” - Greg McCannon, HS&E Coordinator.
It's an ideal first step. I think it's given everyone a good understanding of how everything fits together and you can easily relate it to your role. It certainly improves general awareness and can be taken by employees at all levels.
