gov.uk/pUbns/priced/loler.pdf The aim of this report is to identify key features in regard to Legislation and EU directives in regard to environmental waste management.Identifying and explaining key features of relevant Legislation.There are several key pieces of legislation and acts that are relevant and apply to the management of waste in regards to environmental protection and controlling hazards and risks in the workplace.One of the key acts set in place in was the Environmental Protection Act 1990, and served as an order to establish an appropriate structure and management system for waste and emissions in the UK.
This act was introduced in order to prevent risk to the health of the people or ecosystem around waste products, or the risk of incompatible or dangerous waste being disposed of in the same area, and therefore identifying appropriate routines of the safe disposal of different waste products.This protection act covers a variety of areas and is able to be summarised across several parts.The first part of the act covers the limits that the state is able to administer to a certain process or substance in regards to the harmfulness of the substance and the environment.The second part of the act lays out an adequate set of conditions in which waste can be disposed of on land in a controlled and non-harmful manner, in order to properly be able to license waste disposal and prevent actions that are illegitimate and do not meet these set conditions.The third part of the act introduces a level above local enforcement groups and agencies that are able to reprimand unacceptable actions with varying levels of discipline including criminal offences.
