Waste Management

  • Waste Management
    Overview This talk will cover: the risks to health and safety resulting from poor housekeeping.
    General precautions
    1 Separate different types of waste into separate skips if there is such a system.
    2 If there is a COSH skip, make sure that all used containers of substances are put in it. Do not mix with general waste.
    3 Remove all nails from scrap timber to avoid foot injuries to other people.
    4 Securely bag or bundle lightweight waste to prevent it being scattered by the wind.
    5 Waste created at height must be returned to ground level in a safe manner, not thrown down.
    1 If a skip is to be positioned in the road, a council permit is required.
    2 A skip on the road must be coned off at all times with adequate light at night.
    3 Don’t overload skips – load up to the top of the sides.
    4 Don’t attempt to ride in a skip – waste material could move and injure you.
    1 The accumulation of combustible material could provide the fuel for a large fire.
    2 Dispose of combustible waste in the skips or bins provided as soon as practical after you create it.
    3 Don’t dispose of used LPG cylinders or aerosol cans with general waste.
    4 The burning of waste materials is banned on most sites – don’t light bonfires and don’t light fires in skips.
    Special waste
    1 Special arrangements have to be made for the removal of certain hazardous substances, such as asbestos, from site.
    2 These substances must not be mixed in with general waste.
    Food waste
    1 Discarded food waste will encourage the presence of rats and other vermin.
    2 The presence of rats brings with it the possibility of catching Weil’s disease.
    3 Dispose of food waste in secure bins – do not leave it lying about.
