Why do we do these courses if all we take is rubbish?
Our staff and I keep updated on training due to the risks involved with the job and diseases we may catch if we don’t wear the correct PPE. Such as
MRSA, Hep A, B and C, Body live, Impetigo, AIDS and HIV.
The job may involve us dealing with blood, faeces, urine, vomit and infestations.
We also deal with hypodermic needle collection.
The images attached are what we face when entering a crime scene. These particular images are used for training purposes. They are not meant to cause shock or distress but help educate you on all of the different facets of our job.
For us, clearing waste isn’t just about chucking rubbish in a van.
We’re committed to continual learning and development as we have a duty of care to look after our staff’s health.
