O'Donovan Waste Disposal launches new professional training course

THE Irish firm leading waste management services in London has launched a new training course to improve industry standards.

O’Donovan Waste Disposal revealed its Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) scheme this month, which will be led by managing director Jacqueline O’Donovan.

“We are extremely pleased to have designed and implemented our own driver CPC training,” she told The Irish Post this week.

“We believe the training is the first course of its kind, specifically designed to deal with the issues faced by the waste industry. As the content is based on the experiences of industry professionals and drivers it is designed to ensure that it is 100% applicable to the individual and their job role.”

As well as furthering industry best practice, the CPC programme aims to “facilitate knowledge sharing across the waste sector”, the firm, launched by Cork-man Joe O’Donovan more than 30 years ago, confirmed this week.

Now heading up the business founded by her father, Jacqueline added: “As a family-run company, the training and development of our staff is incredibly important and we hope to change the way that drivers are supported so that, going forward, HGV driving will be recognised for the profession it is.”
