The Health & Safety Executive published a press release yesterday detailing that a school had been fined for radon gas overexposure. A private boarding school has been fined £50,000 after exposing two employees, five pupils, and two other children to high levels of radioactive radon gas.All schools and Universities fall under workplace legislation regarding radon. Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, employers must assess all hazards. Every school must therefore demonstrate that they have considered radon in their risk assessments and taken appropriate action
WAC Testing, also known as Waste Acceptance Criteria testing tells you which landfill site you can send your waste to. WAC Testing sets out the criteria for the acceptance of waste at each landfill class. WAC testing is a legal requirement before a landfill can accept either inert or hazardous waste. Non-hazardous waste does not need WAC testing however if the waste could be inert it is prudent to complete WAC testing as inert landfill charges are more cost effective. The WAC testing is the second step in the Soil Waste management process but can be completed in conjunction with The Soil waste Classification.
