Clean Site® – Focus on Education for Sustainability

Clean Site<sup>®</sup>

KESAB’s Clean Site® program delivers relevant industry training in metropolitan and regional South Australia.

Developed in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board, government agencies, Industry Associations and the building and construction industry, training provides an introduction to environmental sustainability and links to best practice in the work place.

Training focuses on legislation in relation to Environment Protection Authority regulations and codes of practice for stormwater pollution prevention as well as local government requirements.

Training delivery involves environmental toolbox inductions with a focus on connecting with a statewide network of high school students through an agreement with the Construction Industry Training Board’s doorways2construction program.

Training and education is provided in a classroom environment and supports onsite practical experience delivered with resources developed by key stakeholders and reviewed and upgraded to meet environmental sustainability and changes in legislation.

The overall Clean Site® program provides opportunities for onsite waste audits and monitoring relative to waste avoidance and reduction, diversion from landfill, stormwater pollution prevention, and regulatory awareness.

Project highlights this year included a major focus on the Construction Industry Training Board’s doorways2construction program with environmental toolbox induction training delivery to metropolitan and statewide regional network of schools which included students from 35 Trade Training Centres and High Schools with over 720 student participants.

KESAB’s Clean Site® training program delivery provides effective, direct and practical methods for students entering the building and construction industry as a career path to comply with environmental legislation to reduce impacts on the environment by minimising waste onsite, recovering resources together with protecting stormwater systems into the future.
