Ireland leading the way in Europe with Microbead Prohibition Bill

A new Microbeads Prohibition Bill is at committee stage in the Dáil, where the amendment will be debated. The bill will restrict the sale, supply, or manufacturing of products which rinse down the drain, such as shower gels and scrubs. While Ireland is not the first European country to ban these products, Ireland will be the first to include household cleaning items that can also be washed down the drain.  Products that are made to be worn-on and not washed off are not affected by the Bill.

What are Microbeads?

Microbeads are tiny plastics usually between 0.0004-1.24 mm wide and are made from polyethylene, polypropylene or polystyrene.

Why are Microbeads bad?

Due to their minute size, once washed down your drain these micro sized plastic balls have the ability to pass through sewage treatment plants unfiltered and end up in fresh waters and oceans. This can prove hazardous for fish and animals who mistake the plastic for food and from there, the beads are integrated into the food chain.

Why is it important to effectively manage your safety management – and how to get started.

Your introduction to Health and Safety Management Retainers

An effective Flexible Solution to Safety Management is the pillar of any effective organisation. The CMSE Health and Safety Management retainer system is fully transparent and flexible to suit your needs.

Compliance under the 2005 Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act is legally required. We assist companies of all sizes in complying with this legal obligation whilst being able to customise the level of support to the needs of your business – allowing you to concentrate on running your business.

All of our Most Popular Retainers include Free Manual Handling training for staff, Full Company Health & Safety Visit/Audit, Detailed Company Risk Profile and Report, and discounts on our Training (Classroom & Online) and Consultancy services

For more information on each package click here


Why do we offer these services?

  • Manual Handling Training – Manual Handling involves any transporting or supporting of any load by one or more employees. This includes lifting, pushing, pulling, putting down, carrying or moving a load. The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work, (General Applications) Regulations 2007, Chapter 4 of Part 2, outline the requirements that must be adhered to in relation to manual handling.
  • Company Health & Safety Visit/Audit. This vital piece of your safety management system will help you determine how effective your safety program is. These are the controls required to minimise risk. Audits lead to actions and control measures that MUST be implemented.
  • Detailed Company Risk Profile and Report. Risk Profiling will allow you manage risk and balance the cost of controls with the cost of negative event giving you a strong case for a reduction in premiums to your underwriter and insurance broker.
