Waste no effort

HSE InfoLine : 02 September, 2004  (Company News)
Waste management and recycling is one of the UK's fastest growing industries due to the need to provide environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions to our everyday problems of waste. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most dangerous.
A new website designed to help waste management and recycling industries has been launched by the Health and Safety Executive.

Waste management and recycling is one of the UK's fastest growing industries due to the need to provide environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions to our everyday problems of waste. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most dangerous.

The site, which can be found at http://www.hse.gov.uk/waste, aims to give everyone working in the industry access to free, up to date advice on health and safety.

James Barrett, Head of HSE's Manufacturing Sector, said:
'Of all the industries HSE monitors, the waste management and recycling industry has the highest fatal incident rate, figures that are well above both construction and agriculture. This is simply unacceptable. I welcome this new website as a place where the industry can obtain free advice. The industry itself must take steps to instil effective health and safety management and develop a sensible health and safety culture.'

Also speaking about the new website, Trevor Hay, Chair of the Waste Industry Safety and Health forum, said:
'Sadly, the waste and recycling industry compares unfavourably with most other industries in its health and safety performance. This new site is designed to help the industry improve its performance and because it is so easy to get to and to use, effort will not be wasted in this rapidly growing industry.'
