Correct procedures ensure operator safety
Safety at work is our priority and all our products are manufactured to high quality and safety standards. It’s also essential that operatives follow the correct procedures when handling equipment, especially where hazardous substances are concerned, and working at height. If you’re handling and storing drums you are responsible for the risks of pollution to the site where they are stored. Following the good practice guidelines set out by the Environmental Agency will help you reduce those risks and ensure you are complying with the law. Managing our environmental responsibilities is becoming an increasingly important part of industrial practice, make sure you don’t fall foul of the law.
