Albion’s ABC of Waste Management – F FIRE

Are you compliant with the Fire Safety Regulations on your site?

Fires at Waste Facilities have the potential to be very serious, posing risk to life and presenting hazards to the local community and the environment. They can also be very costly.

The Waste Industry Safety and Health (WISH) Forum issued a revised guidance in 2017 aimed at providing waste management operators with the advice and information required to:

  • Reduce the likelihood and frequency of fires at solid waste management sites
  • Where fires do occur, reduce the potential safety, health, environmental, property damage and business interruption impacts
