Sanitary Hygiene Legislation

Our management and staff have many years experience in this industry and have seen more regulation and legislation being introduced.

"Sanitary waste is a controlled waste and must be disposed of under strict legislation"

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 specify that all companies are required to provide a suitable means for the disposal of sanitary dressings in ladies washrooms.

The Water Industries Act 1991 also states that no items should be flushed that could cause a blockage within a sewer or drain.

And in addition, the Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a legal "duty of care" upon companies to ensure that all waste produced at their premises is correctly managed right up to the point of final disposal. This also includes a responsibility to review your contractors.

Legislation has been introduced for very good reasons and we ensure that all of our staff are fully trained and aware of current controls and procedures. Certain waste such as soiled sanitary dressings, nappies, needles need to be disposed of in the correct manner. Employers have a legal duty to ensure that all hazardous waste is disposed of following the correct Duty of Care procedures.

If you are not sure about how you stand regarding the correct disposal of waste, environmental issues, health and safety, then please contact us and we will be happy to help you. All of our customers receive a "Duty Of Care" certificate to certify that your waste is being handled and disposed of in the correct manner. This document should be kept for two years. These certificates are a legal requirement and are provided by us to make sure your business is 100% compliant.

COSHH stands for the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health. Using hazardous substances can put people's health at risk. COSHH requires employers to control exposures to hazardous substances to protect both employees and others who may be exposed from work activities.
