Trident Metals – Protecting People
Providing a safe working environment for our employees, visitors and others affected by our activities is fundamentally important to Trident. Heavy industries are potentially hazardous and metal recycling is no exception.
Trident is committed to meeting and, wherever possible, exceeding our responsibilities under health and safety legislation. We pride ourselves on setting industry standards and strive constantly to improve our safety performance.
Health and safety considerations underpin all aspects of our operations and we are continually working to put ever-improved controls in place. We strive to clearly define the responsibilities of our people and ensure they are competent, suitably trained and have the right working procedures. This includes wearing the right safety clothing, stringent controls on incoming materials and precautions for manual work and the safe operation of equipment.
Aware that our health and safety objectives will only be met by engaging our employees, we develop and enhance our policies, plans and training in close consultation with our people. We use a third party health and safety consultancy firm to review our progress, set new targets and manage any issues that emerge.Trident endeavours to put all of its employees through both internal and external training courses tailored to our business and uses a growing range of tools to ensure safety information is properly communicated. Our main aims are to promote a working environment in which tasks are approached safely and our employees are not only aware of potential risks, but play an active part in managing them.
Our health and safety team monitors the company’s performance by conducting investigations and audits, reviewing procedures, and by working closely with customers to ensure any site-specific safety requirements are met.
