Health & Safety
Health & Safety risks related to e-waste may result from direct contact with harmful materials such as lead, cadmium or chromium; from inhalation of toxic fumes, and from accumulation of chemicals in air, soil, water and food. Recycling activities, such as dismantling of electrical and electronic equipment, can potentially increase the risk of injuries and occupational health hazards. At ADL Process, the Health & Safety of our employees and clients is our priority.
How ADL Process places Health & Safety as a priority
At ADL Process, the Management team makes every effort to provide a safe and healthy environment for staff and clients. Protecting the employees from the risk of injuries and occupational health hazards is an important goal requiring continual involvement from each and every member of the team at different levels:

Staff follows work processes provided by management, and share their input.
