Celtic Recycling celebrates success in the RoSPA Awards 2012

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Celtic Recycling has had its approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health recognised in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012. It has won a Silver award in the annual scheme, which dates back to 1956 and is the largest and longest-running awards programme of its kind in the UK.

The RoSPA Awards scheme recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. It does not just look at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, awards manager at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity with a 95-year history, said: “The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention. We congratulate Celtic Recycling Ltd on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line.”

The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction. Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 sectors, and specialist awards recognise excellence in specific areas, such as the management of occupational road risk.

Following acquisition in 2008, development of the derelict 4.1 acre site was split into two phases. 

The first phase involved the total refurbishment of the existing building providing 16,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space for the disposal, processing and recycling of end of life heavy electrical equipment as well as the treatment and disposal of hazardous wastes. 6,000 sq. ft. of modern office space and training facilities were also constructed as part of the first phase development which completed in 2010.

Phase 2 of the expansion commenced in September 2011 and included the construction of two new industrial units, security lodge, weighbridge and new access road from the public highway.   Designed to accept abnormal loads, the newly constructed road provides dedicated access from the public highway to the new 10,000 sq. ft. heavy load bay.

Equipped with 2 x 63 tonne gantry cranes each fitted with 20 tonne auxiliary hoists, the new heavy load bay also features a 5,000 sq. ft. processing/storage area and additional hot work facilities which historically have been undertaken exclusively at Pyle, Bridgend.

The second unit constructed as part of the phase 2 development provides overhead lift capacity of up to 20 tonnes, 13,500 sq. ft. of additional storage space, a dedicated SF6 processing area and laboratory.

Following successful completion of the development, the very first transformer was received into the heavy load bay for dismantling on the 8th May 2012.
