NVQ training on safety

More than 60 waste handlers, office staff and management at London-based O’Donovan Waste Disposal are currently undertaking Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (Wamitab) training.

It is one of the most substantial programmes to boost staff skills that Wamitab has seen from an SME within the sector.

The NVQ level 2 and 3 courses ensure that staff have full awareness and training of safety aspects of waste management process procedures, as well as ensuring the quality of the materials recovered.

Jacqueline O’Donovan, managing director of O’Donovan, said: “We run the level 2 Wamitab in a multilingual format to ensure that every single one of our waste handlers is fully trained.”

Mark Hyde, commercial director at Wamitab, added: “We are custodians of the competence system on behalf of the sector at senior level, so we are supportive of O’Donovan’s aims to develop this culture across the whole company.

“Everyone has a right to come home safely from work, and being well trained is crucial to making this happen.”
