BSBSUS201A Participate in environmentally sustainable work practices

Topic 1: Identify your current resource use

In this topic you’ll investigate the types of resources you use at work and how much you consume. You’ll also investigate areas of waste and environmental hazards that need to be managed safely. This will involve an understanding of the environmental impacts of using resources, waste and hazards, and how everyday practices can pose serious risks to the environment.

Before we look at resource consumption in the workplace we need to understand why sustainable work practices are necessary. The first place to start is the environment and climate change.
