Returning to the Work Place after Covid

Since March 2020, we’ve all been working from home. 

While the Covid threat continues, we can all now return to a ‘Covid secure’ office, as long as workplace risk assessments and the implementation of control measures are safely in place. 

To ensure everyone is safe to come back to your office, you’ll need to be on top of your waste management too. Some time may have passed since you last made arrangements for this, or you may have changed your working environment and require new services to help with the logistics of removing your workplace waste. 

Here we discuss the requirements you will need and how we can help get your office ready post Covid. 

Not sure how to manage your waste safely?

It is essential that measures are taken to manage work place waste to ensure a safe return.  

Regulations around business waste management are legally enforced for environmental and health reasons. Failure to uphold business-waste regulations and show a duty of care will result in legal action and financial implications.

Firstly you need to identify the waste that will be produced in the workplace as staff return, be it food waste, recycling or general waste. Arrangements should then be made for the regular disposal of waste materials in line with business waste laws. 

Using a professional and experienced business waste management company such as BIFFA will ensure you are safely disposing of all your business waste. Our expert team are available to chat about your requirements and find the best solution for you. 

Do you have a waste management contract?

It’s been a long time since our offices were deemed safe places for colleagues, with the majority of the UK working from home for over the last year.  

Consequently, office maintenance will not have been up kept to their usual high standards. Contracts may also have lapsed in this period of time, so making sure your waste management will be taken care of safely will need you attention. 

We can help arrange your waste collection at a date and time to suit your business needs, making it a painless process.
