Sidhils Environmental Policy Statement

Sidhil is a manufacturer of medical devices and associated equipment, supplying both UK and Overseas customers. The materials used in the products are recoverable and recyclable at the end of their life cycle. The company offers a refurbishment service for specific products to extend their life, therefore reducing cost and environmental impacts.

The company is fully committed to minimising its business aspects e.g. raw material, packaging, utility consumption etc impacts on the environment by:

Ø Preventing pollution through the management, segregation and recycling of waste to reduce volumes going to landfill.

Ø Promoting environmental awareness amongst our suppliers, employees, contractors and partners by effective implementation of operational procedures.

Ø Continual improvement through the setting of objectives and targets where these are implemented using management programmes, which result in improvements to our environmental performance

Ø Compliance with relevant legal and other requirements.

Management and supervisory staff have responsibilities for the implementation of the policy through our formal Environmental Management System (EMS) which is based on relevant ISO Standards.

All employees and sub-contractors are expected to co-operate and assist in the implementation of this policy, whilst ensuring that their own works, so far as is reasonably practicable, are carried out without risk to themselves, others or the environment. This includes co-operating with management on any environment related matter.

The Directors have overall responsibility for all Environmental matters. The operation of this policy and the associated procedures will be monitored and reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that they remain current and applicable to the company's activities.

This policy is available to the public on request. For more information on Sidhils Environmental Policy please ask Lynne Dixon - Production Manager. ldixon@sidhil.com
