Equipment - Environmental Division

The world is in our collective care yet, until recently, Man has heedlessly used whatever resources he has wanted without any reference to sustainability. Many of the processes he has used have irrevocably damaged the environment and poisoned land, air and water for years to come.

Now there is growing awareness that everything we do effects the environment. Health, prosperity, poverty and the environment are all linked.

To address environmental issues new international, regional and national legislation is being implemented. Regulations now force organisations to review their activities and the associated effects with a particular emphasis on the prevention of pollution. Customers too are placing increasing importance on the perceived environmental performance of manufacturers and service providers.

The effect of all these pressures is a real need for environmental effects to be identified and minimised from design, through delivery and use to disposal. It follows that, early in the product design stage, informed decisions should be made on:

  • materials and production processes
  • product utilisation and eventual disposal.

When products, services or processes change the environmental risks must be reassessed. These risk assessment must:

  • be accurate
  • cover all life cycle aspects (design, manufacture, delivery use & disposal).

Where effects are unacceptable action must be taken to eliminate or reduce them.

Where unacceptable environmental effects cannot be eliminated, control must be exercised and routine monitoring organised.
