Contamination may arise as a result of human activities on the environment exactly discuss about the overwhelming pollution caused by human activities, which can be prevented and controlled. All the business sectors of Irish society, from large industry, healthcare to small businesses, and farms households contribute to generate the hazardous waste. Contamination can occur in several forms such as ground and surface water, soil, air, radioactive, food, noise, mold, odors, construction, vibration. etc. Pollution is not handled properly and professionally will always be a health problem and a bad influence on the environment. That’s why, every business and company should take care their environment and give an extra attention towards their waste management and pollution. By having the proper waste management and pollution the companies or industries might contribute to prevent and reduce the generation of hazardous waste by industry and society generally, maximise the collection of hazardous waste with a view to reducing the environmental and health impacts of any unregulated waste, strive for increased self-sufficiency in the management of hazardous waste and to minimise hazardous waste export, minimise the environmental, health, social and economic impacts of hazardous waste generation and management.

This training is addressed to provide further knowledge about the types of contaminants, the latest issue of the contamination, and how to eliminate or minimize these contaminants. In addition, the use of alternative non-hazardous product in the company's effective, and environmentally friendly method of disposal for hazardous and non-hazardous waste
