CoTC Cover / Site Management Support

Albion Environmental Limited is one of the UK’s leading consultants specialising in waste management, environmental, health and safety solutions. We deliver strategic advice, support and training to the waste management and construction industries in both the public and private sectors.

We have developed a good knowledge and understanding of the imperatives of both private sector and local authority clients and our flexible working methods have allowed our service delivery to evolve to become truly client facing in these sectors.

CoTC Cover

We provide temporary and support COTC cover and interim management for all waste management operations including landfill sites, composting sites (including in vessel), anaerobic digestion facilities, Material recycling Facilities (MRF’s), Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) sites.

We will have a qualified member of staff who is qualified and experienced in the type of facility you operate.

In order to make providing temporary cover as cost effective as possible for your business we will be pleased to carry out additional work while we are on your site. We frequently combine providing COTC cover for 1 week with inducting and assessing candidates for their WAMITAB qualifications. This is a cost effective method for providing COTC cover and training your staff. Alternatively we can combine with updating your Working Plan, site documentation etc.
