The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 specify that all companies are required to provide a suitable means for the disposal of sanitary dressings in ladies washrooms.
The Water Industries Act 1991 also states that no items should be flushed that could cause a blockage within a sewer or a drain.
The Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a legal 'duty of care' upon companies to ensure that all waste produced at their premises is correctly managed right up to the point of final disposal.
The transportation of category E sanitary waste needs to be undertaken by a company such as ours that holds a current Waste Carriers Licence issued by the Environment Agency.
Prestige Hygiene will provide you with the legally required Waste Transfer Documentation free of charge!
As meetings face-to-face become a part of business once more, it's been easy to notice the awkwardness when introducing yourself from across the room. Are you a elbow-bumper or a foot-shaker? Coronavirus has changed the shape of social interactions massively. A huge part of this is everyday greetings - Handshakes, cheek-kisses, hugs are not as welcome as they used to be. However, in the meantime, good hand hygiene is the key message. So maybe this is for the better? On average we carry 3,200 bacteria from 150 different species on our hands. On average, we will shake hands 15,000 times in our life time. A handshake transfers twice the amount of bacteria compared to the quicker fist-pump or high-five- according to Nicky Milner, director of medical education at Anglia Ruskin university. The business and professional aspect of handshaking has always been a massive part of British culture, and was always used when meeting and greeting and closing business- but coronavirus has called for a new norm. The world has changed dramatically and this has called for a new territory of etiquette. It is important to take time, hang back, and wait to judge the comfortability of the company you're with. For as awkward as this may be sometimes, it's important to hang back before going in for the big handshake from now on.
