TSA Waste Management Film

At the heart of Network Rail Environmental management responsibilities is the need to conduct operations in a sustainable manner and managing the natural environment responsibly, waste management is key to achieving this by;

  • Introducing waste management concepts of “Duty of Care” and “Waste Hierarchy” and how we apply these in the rail sector
  • Showing a clear course of action to be followed, and the reasoning behind this action and the importance of each person has in their role in effectively managing waste.

 The film takes the viewer through this process and will provide an overview and practice examples on how the Rail Sector reduces the amount of material it uses and minimize the amount of waste it produces with the ultimate aim of zero waste to landfill.
