Health & Safety issues

The use of biological enzymes in a sewage system not only prevent the build up of organic waste but also increase hygiene levels and reduce the risk of disease.

Untreated waste pipes are a breeding ground for pests, disease and nasty smells.

Our guaranteed maintenance plans keep waste pipes clean and therefore eliminate such breeding grounds.

Health & Safety issues

Health & Safety legislation

UK Water Industry Act 1991
The relevant section is S111 (1) which states “… no person shall throw or empty any matter likely to injure the sewer or drain, to interfere with the free flow of its contents.”

Building Regulations. Part H (Drainage and Waste Disposal) 2002
Point 2.21 states “Drainage serving kitchens in commercial hot food premises should be fitted with a grease separator.”

The Food Safety Act 1990
Means that if local authorities inspect organisations and there are found to be problems resulting from poor grease management, action can be taken.

Environmental Protection Act 1991
A duty of care is placed on a company to dispose of waste carefully. This includes fats, cooking oils and thus grease. The act also creates a “statutory nuisance” meaning if there are complaints smells, blockages the local authority have the power to serve an abatement order to stop this, which if not complied with can result in prosecution.
