The Organics Recycling Group of the Renewable Energy Association; Quarterly health & safety monitoring survey Quarter 3: 2013.

We received twelve responses to this survey, these responses covered a total of 629 employees, four (33%) of which showed no accidents or incidents occurring on site.  

There were a total of 29 accidents reported, two of which were reportable under RIDDOR (over seven day absence).   The incidence rate for RIDDOR reportable injuries was 317 accidents (per 100,000 employees) which compares favourably with the HSE reported figure of 610 incidents of over seven day absence (per 100,000 employees), No diseases or dangerous occurrences’ as defined under RIDDOR were reported.  The RIDDOR reportable accidents were both within the over seven day absence category and included one impact related injury and one slip/trip/fall.

Once again the highest number of accidents 11 (40%)   occurred with ABP/IVC operations with windrow operations being only slightly less at 8 (30%). 

We would like to thank all those who responded to this survey and encourage all members to respond to future surveys. We cannot stress highly enough the importance of  the ORG gaining increased participation from industry to build our knowledge of the H&S issues which are impacting us the greatest.
