Bin manufacturer Taylor has launched a health and safety awareness campaign, following poor health and safety records in the waste management and recycling industry.
Taylor is taking action on the issue by embarking on a nationwide campaign to educate companies on standards expected by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and requirements of the Waste Industry Safety and Health Forum.
The company believes that because of its “excellent track record in health and safety” it is well positioned to lead the campaign.
Taylor chief executive Peter Selkirk said: “As an industry we cannot afford to sit still when it comes to health and safety. Taylor has made a commitment to ensure that all its products are produced, and maintained, to the highest standards. Only by being properly informed of these standards will those who work in the industry be able to make the right decision; protecting the safety of workers, customers and the general public.”
An educational guide to health and safety, a poster for the workplace and a video are all available for interested companies on Taylor’s website. Further material will include an advertising campaign and case studies about recent industry-related accidents.
