EHS Training Programs


EHS training is one of GBK's core competencies. We have a first class record of designing and implementing EHS training programs for organizations around the world and we currently stand at well over 1,000,000 contact hours delivered in seven languages and in sixteen countries. Whether it is a regulatory compliance course for your personnel, technical training for your environmental managers or a seminar previewing new or anticipated programs or technologies, GBK curricula are designed to ensure technical quality as well as a pleasant training experience. GBK holds numerous certifications/credentials and provides courses certified by a variety of organizations including: The US EPA's External Provider Program (EPA-ERTP); and the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC). GBK training deals with subjects ranging from environmental sampling to hazardous materials management to responding to chemical and biological weapons.

Here’s a small selection of recent EHS training delivered worldwide by GBK’s highly qualified and experienced instructors:

  • Homeland Security TSA Security Action Items: Delivered at 15 locations nationwide from Anchorage to Tampa.
  • US Army Environmental Officer training in Germany, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands. Training delivered across the IMCOM-Europe region in English and Host-Nation languages.
  • NEPA and EMS awareness for the Federal Aviation Authority.
  • HAZWOPER training from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
  • Hazardous Waste Coordinator for US Coast Guard Atlantic Division at locations from Cape Cod down to New Orleans.
  • EMS and P2 implementation for organizations across the US and Europe.

All GBK’s training courses, whether off-the shelf or custom-built are developed from scratch using primary sources. We don’t copy from others. Our course developers and instructors are skilled in interpreting current legislation and guidance and producing courses that meet your needs in terms of compliance and performance, but are practical, interactive and interesting for the trainee. This sets us apart from many of our competitors. We design and integrate performance-based exercises and competency-based quizzes in all our courses. When the trainee completes one of our courses they return to the workplace knowing what to do next and why they are doing it.

However, a GBK training program may be seen as only a part of an overall sustainability solution. For many organizations, GBK has performed gap analyses, reviewed appropriate legislation and developed custom training to provide personnel with the competence and skills they need to perform their duties at a level well beyond minimum compliance requirements. Here are just some examples of how GBK integrates performance goals and sustainability knowledge when delivering compliance training:

  • Implementer Workshop training. 3-day training events designed to deliver the necessary skills to managers to implement management systems in their organizations or meet the requirements of Executive Orders (e.g. 13423 and 13514).
  • Emergency response trainees learn how their response actions affect the wider environment and their health and safety.
  • RCRA Hazardous waste compliance training also introduces trainees to the waste management hierarchy, pollution prevention opportunity assessments and green procurement practices.
  • Hazardous materials training incorporates on-site visits to maintenance and storage areas for a courtesy performance audit.
  • Stormwater pollution prevention courses integrate spill response training and reporting based on organization SOPs.

Furthermore, GBK takes pride in it’s sustainable delivery of all its instructor-led training:

  • It’s cheaper and greener for us to come to you – GBK can usually have an instructor on the ground anywhere in the US within 48hrs notice and within 72hrs anywhere in the world.
  • All training materials are produced duplex on paper with at least 30% recycled content.
  • Whenever possible our rental vehicles for our instructors offer good mpg. We take diesel or duel-fuel vehicles if it’s an option.
  • Hazardous materials training incorporates on-site visits to maintenance and storage areas for a courtesy performance audit.
  • And yes, when we fly, we fly coach and we participate in carbon off-setting!
