B&M Waste Services driver’s positive safety actions avert disaster

B&M Waste Services’ driver, Dean Burns, is today being congratulated for his excellent health & safety etiquette.

As a member of B&M’s frontline service team, Dean has received regular training and toolbox-talks to ensure he checks every waste container before lifting it. This ensures there are no members of the public sleeping in there, which is an issue that B&M’s ‘Refuse not refuge’ campaign aims to reduce. B&M also work closely with Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity, to further prevent the danger occurring in the first place.

He promptly reported finding a homeless person sleeping in a waste container at a major shopping centre on the Wirral this morning. His actions today saved this man from potential life changing injuries.

Mick Ashall, Director at B&M said: “I would like to thank Dean for his rapid response. It is a lesson to all of us in the waste and recycling industry that people seeking refuge in containers is not just a winter issue. We are using this example to circulate a reminder to all of our colleagues in the industry.”
