Process of recycling and scrap metals

Recycling is the process of converting the waste materials from the production site into new materials and objects. Recycling will prevent the over usage of scarcely available materials while preventing scrap accumulation. It is alternative to waste disposal. Rather than throwing the waste, it can be recycled into a new object. It is the key component of waste management and third component “reduce, reuse and recycle” There are ISO standards which are followed by the companies which are well known for scrap metal recycling. These are all the standards that have to be followed while doing the recycling of scrap material. Recyclable materials include water, glass, papers, iron, tires, and electronic items. It is not only limited to this list. These are all some materials which can be recycled and used. Metal recycling industry includes wide range of metals such as steel, iron, copper, stainless steel but not limited to the list. While dealing with the radioactive materials such as Cadmium, zirconium one has to take at most precautionary measures as possible to avoid any possible health hazards.

Prevention and Control of hazards

While doing the demolition or recycling, any company which is well known for Demolition and Dismantling Services will follow the security processes to avoid any kind of hazard take place. They will have the systematic process of identifying the hazard and preventive measures to prevent it from happening. They would have done the step by step analysis of preventing such hazard from happening. In case if a hazard occurs in spite of having prevention process in place they will have the second line of defense called controlling the hazards to minimize the damage due to that. The planning has to identify the sequence of the work required to prevent any accident from happening. They need to ensure that essential services which have connections are terminated before the demolishing work started. For Example Electrical lines, gas supply lines can be hazardous if not disconnected before the work has started. Contacting the live electrical line will lead to electric shock, electrocution and other variety of hazards.

Workers and passerby may get affected by the objects falling from the top level of buildings such as objects in ceiling. They need to ensure proper netting has been done around the building before the work is commenced. Also they need to ensure they have the proper plans to remove the debris from the demolishing site continuously in order to prevent other hazards happening due to accumulation of debris.
