Alternatives Identification and Assessment Training
The overall goal of the Alternatives Identification and Assessment training is to provide basic concepts and tools to help participants to get started in substitution processes, understand the different stakeholders involved and their interests, which substances are of most concern, how and where to look for new ideas and alternatives and get introduced to existing tools to assess alternatives.
The concept has been developed for a 4 hours training session with around 20 participants. A sample programme including all activities may be the following:
- Introduction to the session. (15min )
- The substitution process. (60 min)
- Identification of chemicals of high concern. (20 min)
- How and where to identify alternatives. (60 min)
- Alternatives assessment. (110 min)
- Cost assessment. (40 min)
Apart from that, the training programme can be adapted taking into account the participants’ background and interests, the time available and the number of participants.
The training session targets authorities, industry, trade unions, NGOs and other interested parties dealing with the substitution of hazardous chemicals in products and processes with safer alternatives.
Materials are available in English, French, German and Spanish. The training sessions cover various regions of the European Union. Additional sessions even outside the EU are feasible using the free materials, but trainer’s costs have to be considered.
The training programme is certified by the Association of German Safety Engineers (VDSI). Participants can collect two points for the topic occupational safety and one point for the topic environmental protection.
