Re-Gen Waste Ltd, a Newry-based waste management solutions company, is celebrating receiving an Ambassador Award at the Waste Industry Safety and Health Forum for Northern Ireland’s (WISHNI) annual ceremony, held in the Dunsilly Hotel, Antrim.
The award was presented in recognition of the company’s first-class health and safety management activity at its Newry waste management facility and remote transfer stations across the United Kingdom.
The Ambassador Award Programme is an initiative developed by WISHNI, to recognise health and safety best practice within the waste industry in Northern Ireland.
Commenting on the award, Managing Director Joseph Doherty said: “We have worked very hard in the last three years, to create a best in class health and safety system that covers all aspects of our existing operations.
“This is a high risk industry so it is crucial that a robust health and safety strategy is implemented and rigorously observed.
“To be recognized by our industry associations, governing bodies and peers validates our strategy and is a reflection of the dedication and discipline of all our staff across the entire organisation.
“A safe workplace is most effectively achieved when every member of staff contributes to the promotion and sharing of knowledge and best practice, he said.”
The aim of WISHNI is to identify, devise and promote activities to improve industry health and safety standards. Members include representatives from professional associations, recycling organisations, and national and local government bodies involved in waste management and recycling.
