London, UK. (PRWEB UK) 13 December 2011
Construction industry software firm Safety Agenda has launched a new Site Waste Management Plan information website, after conducting research which showed many construction businesses do not realize that they have a legal duty to complete a Site Waste Management Plan for almost any construction project worth at least £300,000. The website, http://www.sitewastemanagementplan.com, quickly helps firms understand what is required of them, gives a link to the legal regulations, and provides an example Site Waste Management Plan template for users to download.
Despite the Site Waste Management Plans regulations coming into force in 2008, many firms are unaware of their legal duties regarding SWMP, and will face fines of up to £50,000 when they are prosecuted.
Preparing a Site Waste Management Plan can actually be a very profitable activity for construction companies to undertake. Identifying the best ways to handle waste—in order to reuse, recycle or recover waste rather than disposing of it to landfill—can result in more profitable projects. Profit gains are especially noticeable when a firm examines all its projects side by side to identify opportunities for strategic investment, such as in crushers, or to build new partnerships with waste recovery firms to commercially exploit the waste that the firm as a whole produces.
Managers needing Site Waste Management Plan info, and a free Site Waste Management Plan template, can find the new website at http://www.sitewastemanagementplan.com.
