We often hear about EHS KPI’s, leading and lagging indicators, and other safety metrics but what do they mean for our businesses? How do we determine what is meaningful to track without adding additional administrative work for our EHS staff?
The value of a strong EHS program and Safety Culture is far reaching and can result in lower rates of accidents and incidents and higher rates of employee satisfaction and better employee retention and productivity.
According to the EPA, only 12.5% of electronic waste is recycled. Proper e-waste recycling is easy: check with your local retailers or locate an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler to properly recycle your used electronics.
R2 has seen two prior iterations, R2:2008 and R2:2013 (the current version of the Standard). Both of these share the same intent as R2v3, to require best practices for safe and sustainable reuse and recycling of electronic equipment, components and materials.
