The health and safety processes involved with the Olympics have been praised by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).

IOSH believes that careful planning paid off for the event, and hopes that the Paralympic Games will match the event's success and help to leave a strong legacy.

IOSH executive director of policy Dr Luise Vassie said: "These Games should act as a blueprint for how to organise safe, large-scale events.

"Not just in the way that it developed crowd safety and transport plans to minimise the negative effect on London, but in the way that volunteers were managed."

Dr Vassie went on to say that "everything knitted together so well" in order to make the Olympics a triumphant success.

Ahead of the Olympics, a number of road signs were introduced in Eton Dorney, detailing information about re-arranged refuse collections and other changes brought on by the event.

Staff were also urged to work from home in order to lower congestion in the area.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801431977-ADNFCR
