The use of chemicals to control weeds carries with it a responsibility towards the safety of
employees and other site users and towards the protection of the natural environment.
Consequently, any employees applying herbicidal chemicals hold appropriate and legally-
required qualifications from the National Proficiency Tests Council and are provided with
appropriate protective equipment. They are also trained to conduct and act on the findings
of Environmental Impact Assessments to ensure that the right chemicals are only applied
in the right conditions.
We carry out all weed control with environmental protection foremost in mind. Where
practical and cost-effective we always employ chemical-free weed control techniques and,
when chemical control is necessary, we use the safest of chemicals. Increasingly we are
using only those chemicals which have a non-hazardous classification under the Control of
Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (2002).
