    Scottish council in health and safety first

    Scottish council in health and safety first

    A council in Scotland is pledging to make health and safety a priority when it comes to its waste and resource management services.

    Moray Council is Scotland’s first resource management team to sign the Scottish Resource Sector Commitment to health and safety.

    Run by Zero Waste Scotland and backed by the Scottish Government, the voluntary agreement now aims to promote excellence in health and safety as well as customer service.

    Health checks for all staff

    It is open to local councils and private firms that provide waste or resource management services to commercial customers.

    As part of the initiative, Moray Council has developed guides for its drivers and other employees and is organising health checks for all its staff.

    Zero Waste Scotland’s chief executive, Iain Gulland, says the commitment goes beyond the normal health and safety policies that all organisations should have in place.

    ‘Council proactive on health and safety’

    He says by signing the commitment, Moray Council is showing that it’s paying more than just lip service to health and safety issues.

    Instead, he adds, the local authority is pro-actively working to identify and prevent potential health and safety issues such as accidents at work.

    The council’s move has also been commended by Richard Lochhead, the Scottish Government’s Cabinet Secretary for the Environment.
