The Future of R2 Certification and Responsible Recycling

The R2 Standard is a process of identifying, aggregating, distributing, and monitoring the best- practices in end-of-life electronics recycling and electronics repair. The R2 standard allows companies to consistently keep up with industry knowledge and offers guidance for recycling and electronics repair. This standard benefits the environmental, health, and safety procedures for communities and their workers.

Certification

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other national environmental ministries are urging all electronics recyclers to overcome the lack of government regulations and management of old electronics by obtaining their R2 Certification. The accreditation process is managed by an independent third- party auditor. Companies have to meet high and specific standards to responsibly recycle electronics. There are specific environmental and safety standards that are measured through audits and other means, which must be continuously maintained.

 


The Benefits of R2 Certification:

» Reducing environmental and human health impacts from improper recycling.
» Increasing access to quality reusable and refurbished equipment to those who need it.
» Reducing energy use and other environmental impacts associated with mining and processing of virgin materials, conserving our limited natural resources.

OHSAS 18001: 2007 Certification

As an internationally recognised health and safety as well as occupational management system series standard the OHSAS 18001 is based on the similar ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Plan. OHSAS 18001 required compliance standards and that the company maintain appropriate health and safety policies, procedures, and protocols to ensure it is a safety aware organisation.

 

The Benefits of OHSAS 18001 certification

Risk management will be in best practice on an international platform.

» Becoming a proactive company thereby minimizing liability of employers
» Legislative compliance and awareness
» Cognizantly reducing incident and accident rates and eliminating workplace hazards
» Stakeholders, customers, prospective clients, and regulators will know you are a credible company and maintain a strong corporate image.
» Enhancing the incident investigation procedures.
» Boosting a safer workplace and motivating employees participation.
» Employees, subcontractors and the general public’s health and well being will be ensured.

 


The Future of OHSAS 18001

The ISO 45001 is set to replace the OHSAS 18001. Companies will need to migrate over to the ISO 45001 in a 3 year time span as soon as the new standard’s publication launches. ISO/DIS 45001.2:2017 is the first global Occupational Health and Safety management system standard to come into existence.

Launching the ISO 45001 will most likely entail:

» A ballot will be held as well as a four month period to allow for translations of the ballot.
» The ballot results will unveil the next stages. The publication could be done as early as November 2017.


 

ISO 14001: 2015 Certification

The ISO 14001: 2015 maps out the criteria and framework that companies must follow in order to have an effective environmental management system. Any organization can use it regardless of the industry or activity.

R2 Certificated

The R2 certification means that eCycle Florida demonstrated to an independent auditor their commitment to reuse and recycle the maximum amount possible of electronics they receive, and also to eradicate the harmful effects to the environment or humans working with the items they collect. The responsibility does not stop there for eCycle Florida as the company has to ensure the electronics are managed correctly by their downstream partners and ensure that all data, such as hard drives on computers, is destroyed.
