Going green and going clean!

Green technologies and initiatives have made their way into building-design technologies as well as products and processes. When a company has set green initiatives, it implies that management is aware of the environmental concerns involved in certain industrial processes and is taking steps to evaluate the risks.

Lead the way

While it’s your company’s job to engage in these types of initiatives you also play a role in following your employer’s environmental programs. That includes keeping a clean work-space and recycling resources to the best of your ability.

Common resources you may recycle include:

  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Plastic scraps
  • Aluminum
  • Wood
  • Fabrics
  • Chemicals

As you clean your work area, remember to use the correct personal protective equipment if you work with chemicals or other hazardous materials.

Say the word

As environmental initiatives around the world increase, you have the ability to make the change you want to see in your own workplace. If your employer doesn’t have an environmental program, recommend one be implemented. There are simple effective steps that can help such as:

  • Posting signs,
  • Reducing heat,
  • Adjusting thermostats,
  • Picking up trash, and
  • Recycling unused materials.
