Waste Transfer and Fire Safety
The Waste Guidance Notes cover:-
• your Duty of Care as regards waste
• the Hierarchy of Waste
• how you need to store the waste your company produces and
• how to dispose of it
• hazardous waste, what it is, and how you can manage it
We have also updated the Waste Transfer Note in the Environmental Documents folder for those of you who already transfer waste materials to another party. From 28 September 2011, you must declare on your waste transfer note that you have applied the waste hierarchy, which means you must consider reusing or recycling your waste before deciding to dispose of it.
The Waste Transfer Note has been updated to allow you to be compliant with the above legislation.
Simply-Docs have added to the Fire Safety documents with an updated version of the generic Fire Safety Policy that you may have already downloaded. The document is simple to use, non industry specific, and one which will help make sure you are compliant with the Fire Safety Order.
