Manufacturing Skills Queensland (MSQ) is conducting a series of Green Skills Seminars to help industry comply with stringent new Government green regulations.

There will be 10 seminars held throughout Qld in August and September by Outsource Services, a registered national training organisation, developed specifically to meet the needs of organisational sustainability.

“As Australia becomes more environmentally conscious, the Government is taking steps towards a more sustainable future,” said MSQ General Manager Erik Salonen.

“We are seeing more stringent regulations being applied to resources such as water and energy, causing the cost of raw materials to continuously rise,” he said.

“As such, sustainable business practices within the manufacturing industry are now more imperative than ever.

“The efficiencies that can be achieved through adopting green practices are measurable and companies that adopt greener, leaner manufacturing policies will experience cost-savings as well as the benefits of being environmentally-conscious suppliers.”

Attendees can benefit from a two-hour seminar session and go on to attend the full-day accredited workshop.

By attending the whole day, participants will gain competencies which will help them to implement and monitor workplace policies and procedures for environmentally sustainable practices.

Manufacturing professionals are urged to up-skill, as demand for “green skills” emerges throughout the industry.

The seminars are primarily aimed at vocational education and training professionals who are interested in sustainability and individuals studying towards a Diploma in Engineering.

They will be run at various city and regional centres from August 31-September 30.
