The Waste and Recycling Industry – handling numerous key resources to help drive Australia’s economic success
The waste and recycling industries are an essential component to Australia’s economic growth, supplying key resources to shape our commercial and residential industries. With economic growth ensuring these resources are in high demand, other factors are impacting on the viability and growth of these industries.
Major Factors Facing the Waste and Recycling Industry
Occupational Workplace Health & Safety (OWH&S):
- Air Quality
Along with excessive dust and odours, heat greatly reduces productivity and is detrimental to a safe working environment for employees. Waste and recycling industries generate significant emissions of dust and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). These emissions must be controlled to avoid inhalation by employees and neighbouring populated areas. Inhaling airborne by-products may lead to respiratory disease or other illnesses.
Managers must provide a safe and healthy working environment for all employees and neighbours to alleviate concerns for their wellbeing. This may also reduce the possibility of future litigation arising from issues caused by unsafe working and environmental conditions.
Making Waste and Recycling Productive and In Harmony with Residential Expansion.
Waste and recycling industries are also witnessing mounting legal challenges from local, state and federal Legislative and EPA groups, due to emissions. Issues of dust, odours and heat may be overshadowed by productivity inefficiencies if not effectively addressed now. Residential expansion is also creating new challenges to the way these industries manage and control their emissions in the suburban landscape.
