B&M Waste Services are encouraging businesses to ensure their waste management service provider is fully health and safety compliant.
Waste management involves lots of movement of large vehicles and equipment both on-site at waste management companies, out on the highways, and in customers’ premises. With this comes the crucial consideration of ensuring the safety of the public and the waste operatives simultaneously.
Graham Curtis, Director at B&M Waste Services said “We are proud of our commitment to health and safety in everything we do, and our customers rest assured that our OHSAS 18001, Safe Contractor, Contractor Plus and ROSPA Silver accreditations are testament to this ethos.”
Ann McMurrie, EQHSC Manager at B&M Waste “We have comprehensive operative training, as well as working closely with our customers on an ongoing basis to eliminate any risks. We urge businesses who are unsure as to the level of qualification or accreditation of their current waste services provider, to investigate this and protect their own customers and staff who may be at risk if appropriate procedures are not adhered to when operating large waste vehicles in public.”
Graham continued “With a growing customer base comes a growing fleet, and we ensure our vehicles are fitted with the very latest safety technology, with 100% of our vehicles now containing side under-run protection to minimise the probability and severity of under-run collisions with vulnerable road users. This is in addition to blind spot cameras, reversing cameras/alarms and indicator induced speech warning message.
B&M’s ‘Every day a Safe Day’ health and safety campaign re-iterates the importance they put on stringent health and safety operations.
