HEALTH & SAFETY
All Midland Pest Control technicians are trained in all pest control techniques.
Full training in Health and Safety procedures, Risk Assessment and Pest Control Legislation are obligatory and we ensure each of our technicians has undergone training successfully.
Over 30 Acts of Parliament govern the work practices employed by midland pest control, including:
- The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
- The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999
- The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002
- Food Safety Act 1990
- Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986-97
- Poisons Act 1972
All our technicians work to a disciplined procedure which involves:
- A formal assessment as to how the pest prevention will be achieved
- Regular visits and the provision of an updated documentation to keep you informed and to meet legislation requirements.
- A risk assessment which covers:
- Full identification of potential risks & how they should be avoided
- Any signs or barriers to cordon off the working area
- The use of any personal protective equipment if necessary
Putting the Environment First
Midland Pest Control endeavours to minimise the potentially harmful environmental effects of our activity wherever and whenever possible.
A primary part of our corporate environmental pest control strategy is sustainable waste management. We recognise our responsibilities to recycle materials wherever possible, and aim to minimise waste (especially hazardous waste), disposing of all waste through safe and responsible methods.
100% Safe & Effective
Midland Pest Control uses environmentally safe and sustainable energy sources wherever possible and, through carefully coordinated route planning, we seek to realise the dual benefits of reduced fuel consumption and lower exhaust emissions.
We also conduct regular reviews of our performance in implementing our principles and in complying with all applicable laws and regulations.
