Event Date:

August 06, 2021

Event Time:

08:00 am

Event Location:

Are you a small business owner or employee in Victoria who manages or disposes of waste? Changes in Environmental Protection Laws starting July 1st 2021 , will make all businesses responsible for protecting the environment and human health.

The EPA is striving to make sure Victorian businesses are aware of these changes; and to educate business owners and their staff to ensure compliance.

Activities at businesses in different locations can cause pollution and waste. The combined effect can have an impact on human health and the environment. The general environmental duty (GED) is at the centre of the Environment Protection Act 2017 and it applies to all Victorians. You must reduce the risk of harm from your activities:

  • To human health and the environment ·
  • From pollution or waste

This means the approach to protection of human health and the environment has changed. The expectation is that you will manage your activities to avoid the risk of environmental damage. You must also respond if pollution does occur.

Some common risks to manage include:

  • business activities that produce noise, odour or runoff to stormwater
  • the storage, use and disposal of liquids and chemicals
  • management of wastes and the choice of transporter or receiver of wastes.

All business owners are responsoble for the impact their waste has on the environment, get up to date with law changes and register for the below webinar.
