Wilton Centre Facilities Management has undergone its annual third party SHE Audit initiated by the building owners. The main theme of the audit, conducted in November last year, was Asbestos Management and Fire Safety Management. The auditors said: “On the whole, the site and areas inspected for asbestos were found to be in good order and the minor number of recommendations in this audit reflect this. The WCFM Management Team was found to be very professional in all areas of asbestos procedures and control.
Last year saw a significant reduction in the amount of waste sent to landfill from The Wilton Centre. In 2007, 27% of solid waste generated was sent for recycling, this increased to 41% last year.
