We will identify and manage any impact our operations may have on the environment and ensure improvement on an ongoing basis.
In relation to training activities the following will be adequately addressed in our Quality and Operations Manual:
- The need to plan journeys to and from clients premises using transport that minimizes harmful emission.
- That the types of fuel used for live fire training, fire sizes and duration, and management of any environmentally harmful products are clearly addressed.
- That at our fire college, all water run-off from the training area is via a three-way separator pit, while water from targets and props is via a conservancy tank, both of which are monitored and emptied regularly.
In relation to technical services
- Any testing or research will take into consider environmental consequences.
- As with on-site training, the journey will be planned using transport that minimizes harmful emission.
At our premises in Springbok Road, suitable procedures or initiatives to conserve energy and promote recycling will be considered implemented as deemed necessary.
FPASA will endeavour to comply with all relevant environmental legislation.
All staff will receive training to raise awareness regarding environmental issues and the need for their co-operation to continually improve our environmental policies and procedures.
