Waste collection services are one of the most hazardous parts of the waste industry. Work is undertaken on public roads with live traffic and in constantly changing conditions. Workers have to deal with a variety of waste materials while encountering risks that are not within their employer’s direct control. Physical management and supervision is more difficult than at fixed workplaces.
Kerbside collections of domestic waste also present a significant risk to local authorities and members of the public. For local authorities where the service is contracted out, due diligence in the selection of the service provider and subsequent contract management is part of the effective risk transfer process.
Showing moral leadership and ensuring legal compliance will benefit the reputation of a local authority, whilst reducing financial loss from costly accidents, fines and claims for compensation.
This guide is intended to assist local authorities in managing these risks by addressing cultural change as part of a broader change management process.
