The key objectives for RPS in 2016 include:
With regards to site efficiencies, we aspired to develop our pallet sorting, inspecting and repairing processes by creating new areas on site for each of these activities. Since mid-August the Repairing team has tested the use of pivoting repair tables to reduce the handling of damaged pallets. Other simple processes, such as the Sorting team presenting pallets upturned to the Repair team further reduces handling and improves health, safety and productivity.
We are extremely proud that we achieved and have maintained ISO 14001:2004 accreditation since August 2011. In line with the 2015 amendment to ISO 14001 we are currently developing our health, safety and environmental management system to comply with the changes and encourage wider environmental awareness with our team, our network and the community.
RPS has until 2018 to apply the 2015 amendments however we’ve already started and hope to implement these changes by Summer 2017, ahead of the deadline.
Improving our company’s environmental impact has always been one of our main goals demonstrated by RPS being a finalist in this year’s National Recycling Awards. We know by reusing and recycling waste packaging, we can encourage a more sustainable planet.
