Recover paper safely

HSE InfoLine : 09 February, 2004  (Company News)
A new advice leaflet on improving health and safety in the recovered paper industry will be launched on Wednesday 25 February 2004 at a free half-day seminar, aimed at those working in the recovered paper industry.
A new advice leaflet on improving health and safety in the recovered paper industry will be launched on Wednesday 25 February 2004 at a free half-day seminar, aimed at those working in the recovered paper industry.

On Wednesday 25 February 2004, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), in partnership with industry stakeholders, leading manual handling trainers Pristine Condition and Shoesmiths Solicitors, invite employers and employees from the industry along to a free half-day seminar, at the Forest of Arden Hotel, Coventry.

Talking about the seminar James Barrett, Head of HSE's Manufacturing Sector said:

'Recycling paper is big business. Most of us do it, and more and more local authorities are making it one of their top priorities to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. But how many people know that recycling paper can be fatal?'

'All too often the health and safety of people working in the industry is given insufficient attention, the machinery used, including conveyors and balers, is straightforward but accidents at these machines sometimes, sadly result in loss of life. Bulk paper is heavy and many of the workers suffer from bad backs or other musculoskeletal problems.'

At the seminar Pristine Condition's Dave Snowdon, a former Olympic athlete, will demonstrate how to prevent back injuries and other musculoskeletal problems. Ron Reed, a partner with Shoesmiths Solicitors, will outline the legal responsibilities of employers from an experienced advocate's view, and Mike Wilcock from HSE will talk about health and safety and launch the new guidance.
