Legislation

Legislation has been introduced for very good reasons and we ensure that all of our staff are fully trained and aware of current controls and procedures. Certain waste such as soiled sanitary dressings, nappies, needles need to be disposed of in the correct manner. Employers have a legal duty to ensure that all hazardous waste is disposed of following the correct Duty of Care procedures.

If you are not sure about how you stand regarding the correct disposal of waste, environmental issues, health and safety, then please contact us and we will be happy to help you. All of our customers receive a “Duty Of Care” certificate to certify that your waste is being handled and disposed of in the correct manner. This document should be kept for two years. These certificates are a legal requirement and are provided free of charge to you, unlike some other suppliers who charge for these additional services.

COSHH stands for the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health. Using hazardous substances can put people’s health at risk. COSHH requires employers to control exposures to hazardous substances to protect both employees and others who may be exposed from work activities.
