this survey show that the highest number of accidents involved slips, trips
& fall in the composting sectors with a total of 13 (24.5%) accidents
Whilst the number of responses to these surveys is growing we continue to encourage all ORG & biogas sector group members to participate in future surveys, the greater the number of responses the more accurately these surveys will reflect the organic waste industry. Anyone interested in in participating in future surveys should contact Gordon Thompson (Gordon@r-e-a.net Tel 07584 253 733).
