Hello Mr Silverman,

 

Thank you for your FOI request as set out below:

 

Please refer to:

 

[1]http://www.cleanhighways.co.uk/wp-conten...

 

Please provide me with 2 sample copies of any communications to Local
Authorities informing them of this guidance.

 

Similarly, please provide any communications with Highways England
informing them of this guidance.

 

HSE’s response is as follows:

 

"Safe cleansing on the highway - Managing the risks associated with manual
and mechanical cleansing", also referred to as "WASTE 24", is not an
Health and Safety Executive (HSE) publication.  This guidance was
developed, published and promoted by the Waste Industry Safety & Health
(WISH) forum on their own website.

 

HSE does not hold copies of communications with Local Authorities or
Highways England informing them about this guidance.”

 

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

 

If you are unhappy with the decisions made by HSE you may ask for an
internal review within two calendar months of the date of this letter by
writing to me.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
