    Implementation of skills training in a mechanical workshop at the Skill Training Centers in Malaysia indirectly generates solid waste and needs to be managed properly. The generation of solid waste in this situation consists of hazardous and scheduled waste, and without proper management, it would disrupt the implementation of the training sessions and indirectly contribute to environmental pollution. In this study, the solid waste category was identified, and major components of waste composition and its associated fraction were analysed, then presented in percentage value accordingly. The generated solid wastes were classified and analysed using the Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control (HIRARC) in identifying the potential and severity of hazardous situation occurrences. This study proposed to establish a waste management system for solid waste disposal and Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) as a guide to managing solid waste in the skill training workshop. Ultimately, the proposed sustainable solid waste management system does contribute to the green environment.
