Environmental Management Systems (EMS) help companies streamline their reporting and regulatory compliance, and proactively respond to global customer and corporate expectations. Incorporating your Toxics Use Reduction activities into an EMS can increase employee engagement and promote implementation of feasible TUR opportunities. This course gives TUR Planners the credentials needed to certify that a company's Environmental Management System satisfies the requirements of the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA). This year's class features the real world experiences in TURA EMS development and implementation of Umicore Technical Materials North America. Participants will work on activities based on Umicore's TURA EMS experience, complete homework assignments between course dates, and tour Umicore's Attleboro facility as an integral part of the completion of this class.


TURA Environmental Management Systems (both days) fee is $325.00 for TURA filers and $375.00 for Non-TURA filers. The registration fees include workshop materials, lunch and breaks.
