The Waste Industry is potentially a very dangerous place to work and fatal injury is not uncommon. We are passionate to ensure that our clients waste operations are safe and aspire to help you achieve this through:
Audit of your waste facility/facilities
Reviewing your risk assessmentsand safe systems of work
Training personnel in aspects of health and safety relevant to the waste industry, as well as employers statutory obligations
Training personnel potentially exposed to specific high risk activities

Auditing your facility
Detailed audit of your facility will:
catalogue H&S legislation relevant to your facility/operations
catalogue current activities at your facility/operation and how they relate to H&S requirements
ensure that you are aware of the obligations associated with each aspect of H&S legislation
verify that the necessary risk assessments and work systems are in place and fit for purpose
provide you with a framework for improving H&S thereby controlling the risk to your operatives and other site users
An audit consists of a site visit entailing completion of a detailed checklist appropriate to your facility/operations; photographic and written evidence of non-compliance or specific issues requiring attention; and a written report for your records from which you can remediate issues raised.
Risk Assessments & Safe Systems of Work
Documented assessments and procedures are the foundation for operating a safe site. All activities at your site/operation should have appropriate risk assessments (including COSHH if relevant) and safe systems of work for specific activities which may put your operatives at high risk.
We can review your existing risk assessments, safe systems of work, site induction/staff training procedures and advise you as to how these should be improved or expanded and up-dated.
We like to keep our clients aware of potential issues at their facility and provide free e-bullets as and when topics of interest arise.
Learning for Life
To be safe in the work place all operatives need some level of training; those managing a facility need the best training possible.
Understanding Health & Safety legislation in the waste industry is a key aspect of the WAMITAB competency awards and associated Continuing Competence.
If there is a gap in your knowledge we provide mentoring throughout the assessment process and will continue to raise awareness through informal discussion and provision of sample questions relevant to the CC test.
