Health and Safety

Whilst it’s safe to clean up the odd bird dropping, handling guano by quantity should be done with care. Measures should be taken at all times to protect staff, contractors and public health if working near to or on a guano infested site. There are many health and safety regulations and waste disposal considerations that need to be followed when working with or near bird guano. Anyone doing so should observe the regulations below or consult an experienced professional such as Urban Issues.

  • The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992, Regulation 3
  • The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 (SI 1992/2932)
  • The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1994
