Environment, Health and Safety Legislation Update Service
It is important for companies to be aware of legislation that may impact directly on their activities. For example, while your company may not be involved in the collection of waste, all companies should be aware of the relevant legislation to ensure only those contractors with the appropriate waste collection permits are used to remove waste from the premises. There are certain pieces of legislation that impose general duties/obligations on all companies, an example here would be that all companies have a duty of care to prevent groundwater pollution resulting from their activities and must comply with the conditions of its relevant trade effluent licence. Other legislation imposes obligations on particular activities/sectors.
