Environmental Health and Safety Policy

TechPlas Environmental Polcy

The management of Tech Plas Extrusions declares that, in the execution of its business operations, the safety (including health and well-being of employees) and the environmental policy, in addition to ensuring profitable growth and employment, forms a full and integrated part of the company policy.

As a Signatory to the Australian PVC Industry’s Product Stewardship Commitment, administered by the Vinyl Council of Australia, Tech Plas Extrusions adheres to the principles and commitments of the Stewardship Program as an integral part of this Environmental Policy.

Tech Plas encourages the responsible use of all polymer based products at end of usable life. If uncontaminated most PVC products can be recycled in to other useful products, Tech Plas has arrangements with many of our local customers to arrange for the return and ultimate recycling of PVC products (such as clean off-cuts from customer post-processing, our TechBoard and barrier board products). Click here to go to the Vinyl Council of Australia Sustainability website, where you can find additional information on the end-of-life usage and disposal of PVC. Here you can find a list of PVC recycling facilities in your state.

Under safety and environment policy, we are committed to comply with applicable legislation and regulations. In addition, to the extent practicable, we continually aim to improve our achievements in term of safety and environment, through:

  • appropriate measures to limit and where possible prevent ( personal ) risks, damage, loss and fire;
  • the promotion of good working conditions;
  • the prevention, control and reduction of emissions to air, water, soil and of noise ;
  • the prevention, control and reduction of waste streams;
  • the evaluation of environmental and safety aspects in relation to the purchase and use of raw materials, auxiliary materials and chemicals;
  • the evaluation of environmental and safety aspects in relation to process development and the purchase of machinery and equipment;
  • adequate training, education and involvement of employees with regard to safety and environment management;
  • The promotion of good relations and communications with the government and third parties in relation to safety and environment issues
  • Tech Plas Extrusions is committed to the end of life cycle policy for its PVC products. Arrangements are in place with recyclers to reuse recycled materials when they reach to the end of life cycle.

We are committed to take appropriate measures to control and reduce the adverse effects of our business operations in terms of safety and environment, taking into account the best available techniques and technology.

We require our contractors and suppliers conform to this safety and environment policy.The care and attention for a safe, healthy and environmentally sound execution of the business operations is the responsibility of every employee.
