February 2019 – CIWM has published an article on the importance of H&S statistics to the waste industry, written by Toni Gladding (The Open University, Chair of the CIWM H&S SIG, and WISH forum) and Ceri Beynon (HM Inspector of H&S – Waste and Recycling Team).

The article looks at the picture for 2018, and discusses the place of the waste industry, as it is recognised as one of the worst performers.
