Local authorities reminded of their health and safety responsibilities

Local authorities are being reminded to check that they are clear on their health and safety responsibilities in procuring and managing waste and recycling services, ahead of a programme of inspections that will begin next month.

Over the next three years, HSE inspectors will look at the procurement and management of municipal waste and recycling services following the introduction of guidance in January that clarifies the legal duties on local authorities.
