    Liquid Bioresources manager, Francis Marsh said: “We’ve taken this step in order to reduce the risk to those on site from the potentially harmful effects of liquid waste on the eyes, nose and mouth.”

    “This addition to our existing PPE requirements has been well advertised and signs are in place at all discharging facilities documenting the complete list of protective wear. This includes high visibility clothing, appropriate full length trousers, gloves and steel toe-capped footwear.”
