The objective of 3D Personnel Limited is to run its operations avoiding unnecessary, or unacceptable effects on the environment. Any effects will be minimised as far as practicable. Environmental considerations will be given equal importance to the more traditional business issues such as production, research, sales, safety and finance.
The Company will work towards achieving its environmental objectives by:
Ensuring the Company’s commitment to continual improvement is reinforced throughout the Company and the measures through its Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and policies and procedures.
Minimising the impact of all its operations on the local and global environment and the quality of life of the local communities in which the Company operates.
Meeting all relevant statutory regulations.
Maintaining the cleanliness and appearance of premises to the highest practical standards.
Aiming for efficient use of all resources used in its operations and by reduction of waste through process improvements. Recycling of material is continued wherever feasible and further positive steps are taken to conserve resources, particularly those that are scarce or non-renewable.
Fully considering, in advance where possible, the environmental effects of any significant new development and adjust the Company's plans accordingly.
Providing Customers with the information necessary to enable our products to be properly used, stored and disposed of, so as to avoid unacceptable effects on the environment.
Working with suppliers to ensure that the products and the services they supply are environmentally acceptable.
Providing the necessary information to enable employees to operate the processes properly and with minimal effects on the environment.
The duty of care under the Control of Pollution (Amendment) Act 1974, Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Controlled Waste Regulations 2012 is recognised by the Company during the undertaking of its Construction works and is met with by the following basic principles:
Preventing anyone keeping, depositing, disposing of or recovering our 'controlled waste' without a waste management licence, or an exemption from the need for a licence.
Stopping materials escaping from our control, or the control of anyone else by packaging it appropriately.
Ensuring waste is only transferred to an authorised person. Making sure that a person or business is authorised to deal with our particular type of waste.
Ensuring that the waste being transferred is accompanied by a written description that will enable anyone receiving it to dispose of it or handle it in accordance with his or her own Duty of Care.
Where 3D Personnel Limited conduct works which may have an effect on the environment, careful planning will be implemented to reduce the risk of pollution. 3D Personnel Limited recognises that most pollution incidents are avoidable, and the measures to avoid pollution can in most instances cost very little if included at the planning stage.
Where planning works, it may be suitable to prepare an Environmental Plan, which will accompany the Principal Contractors Construction Phase Plan, and provide guidance on reducing the impact of works on the surrounding areas, nearby watercourses and the environmental as a whole. In addition, Specialist Consultants may be appointed to assist with environmental issues during the concept and design phases.
