Practical staff support at RWM

In MRW’s final instalment of what to do and see at RWM, we focus on the all-new Skills Village, which will cover all your skills, learning, training and qualifications questions and needs

WAMITAB Skills Village programme unveiled

People and their personal development is the lifeblood of the waste sector. Ensuring employees are safe, compliant and equipped with the right skills for the roles and tasks they undertake is critical for the success of any business.

The Skills Village brings together industry-leading deliverers of training, consultancy and qualifications, hosting a series of 20-minute briefings and interactive discussions on everything skills-related - from apprenticeships, funding, online learning, technical competence and much more. WAMITAB, the awarding organisation for qualifications and skills in the waste and resource management sector, has developed the programme to offer direct practical support in developing staff from entry level to future leaders.

Highlights each day include a talk led by Mark Hyde from WAMITAB on getting the most out of funding and ‘Entry into the sector – apprenticeships and flexible qualifications’ will be covered by Judith Ward from SWRAC. A session on developing competent personnel will be led by Don Glaister, managing director of Serac UK, leadership and lean management will be covered by Steffan Edwards, managing director of Smart Development, while Doug Gorrie from CKT will discuss ADR regulations for transporting hazardous goods and Simon Charman, director of ENTAC will discuss winning business and staying safe.

With many professionals embracing a wider sustainability remit in their role, RWM in partnership with CIWM 2013 is co-located with three complementary events taking place simultaneously at the NEC from September 10 to 12 (all free to attend) – The Energy Event, The Renewables Event and The (new) Water Event.

Disab’s mighty Vacloader at RWM

The world’s most powerful vacloader, the Disab Centurion LN200/9-1812 Hi-Tip, is going to be at the RWM Show in September on stand OA122.

Designed and manufactured in Sweden by Disab (, this amazingly versatile machine generated the sort of suction power that set all sorts of new standards when it was first introduced, as it has both suck and blow capabilities, can vacuum up both wet and dry material, and can transport up to five tonnes of that material to wherever it needs to be taken.  For operators, this has created all kinds of new opportunities, besides much more efficient solutions to old problems.
