Environmental Policy

To achieve successful accreditation for

ISO 14001

, there were many processes implemented and standards that had to be achieved.

OBJECTIVE

  • To ensure that Nationwide complies with the “Duty of Care” imposed on the management of waste by the Environmental Protection Act.
  • To ensure that all Nationwide employees take reasonable steps to look after waste and prevent its illegal disposal by others to the extent governed by the clients contract with Nationwide.

ENVIRONMENTAL CARE

  • Nationwide will ensure it takes all appropriate measures to avoid adverse environment effects, and will introduce and maintain relevant policies and practices.
  • Managers will train employees to understand and comply with all aspects of Nationwide policies.
  • Nationwide will use products that avoid or reduce adverse environmental impacts before use.
  • Nationwide will provide full information to its employees and customers on the proper use and disposal of the cleaning materials being used.
  • Nationwide will undertake its activities so as to make the most efficient use of energy, water and materials in order to minimise waste.

WASTE DISPOSAL

  • Controlled waste is defined as any waste product from trade or business premises, or by sport and recreation venues.
  • Nationwide will only transfer controlled waste to another authorised person or carrier.
  • Nationwide will obtain “transfer notes” from the person collecting controlled waste from a site. These transfer notes will be passed to the Health and Safety Officer, who will retain them for a minimum period of two years.
  • Transfer notes will be completed as considered appropriate between parties, but no one note can cover a period exceeding one-year.
  • The Health and Safety Officer will be responsible for ensuring all waste disposal sub – contractors provide details of their registration and either provide a “Controlled Waste Transfer Note” or sign a Nationwide Cleaning & Support Services Ltd transfer note.
