Biffa Waste donates over �5,000 to East Anglian Air Ambulance
Successful health and safety work by Biffa Waste employees around Norfolk has seen over �5,000 donated to the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).
A total of �5024.44 has been donated to EAAA as part of the recycling and waste management company's charity scheme related to health and safety performance.
Each day a site goes without a health and safety accident Biffa adds �5 to a pot which will go to the depot's chosen charity at the end of each year.
At the end of each quarter if the depot has not had any health and safety accidents a further 20pc bonus is also added.
Biffa Norwich and Great Yarmouth manager, Neil Adcock, said: 'Health and safety is extremely important to Biffa. The incentive scheme aims to encourage employees to take an active interest in safety management and further reduce the possibility of accidents at work.'
With no government or National Lottery funding, it takes around �4.2m a year to keep EAAA's helicopters flying, which is why Biffa chose to donated the funds to the regional emergency service.
Amy Greenwood, EAAA's deputy fundraiser for south Norfolk, added: 'We would like to extend our thanks to all the team at Biffa for making this donation and welcome the pro-active approach Biffa is taking in relation to health and safety.'
