Companies increasingly recognize that what is good for human health and the environment is also good for business and the bottom line.
Effective toxics use reduction (TUR) protects workers, communities, and the environment, while sharpening a company's competitive edge. TUR Planners are essential to this process. Click here to learn more about the role of the TUR Planner.
The Toxics Use Reduction Institute offers the TUR Planning course annually to train professionals responsible for assuring a company's TUR planning is done in good faith and yields new opportunities to create a more efficient and sustainable operation.
About the blended (on-line and in-class sessions) format: This course begins with attending a required kick-off group web meeting on Tuesday, August 29 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM. For the next month, class participants will work on the 11 on-line training modules and discussions at their own pace. Participants who have not completed the on-line discussions, exercises and quizzes will not be admitted to the in-class sessions.
Four in-class sessions (September 28 and October 5, 12, and 26) follow. The course features a real world example that participants work on together (both in and out of class) to create a TUR Plan which will be presented to a mock management team.
