By working with RIOS™ certified recycling facilities, you
share in and reward that company’s commitment to healthy, safe and sustainable
recycling. When you collect recyclables,
it is imperative that your material is contributing positively to the
environment and to your community. The requirements placed on a facility that
has implemented a RIOS™ QEHS management give you the confidence to know that you
are accomplishing these goals.
As part of the RIOS™ QEHS management system implementation
process, facilities must thoroughly consider all of the possible risks and
impacts that their facilities have on both health and safety, as well as the
environment. They must then put together robust controls, procedures, and
training mechanisms to diminish or eliminate those potential areas of concern.
Whether you are looking for a facility that will
recycle or refurbish an old laptop, or for a long-term, high-volume contract
with a scrap yard for demolition scrap, it is more important than ever that the
health and safety of the workers at your recycler, and the impact on the
environment is part of your vendor selection process.
