Environmental Policy

Purpose

Flexible Machining Systems Ltd. (FMS) is part of the Mecmesin group of companies and is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment, by complying with current legislation and codes of practice so we ensure we are operating in an environmentally responsible manner. This policy is to communicate that intention to all employees, customers and suppliers as required. We are committed to providing a quality service whilst minimising our potential impact on the environment.

Scope

This Policy applies to all permanent and temporary employees of the Company. All employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims of this policy are met.

Principles

    1. Waste should be reduced as far as possible and we promote the efficient use of materials and resources throughout our facility.
    2. FMS Ltd. actively promote recycling for cardboard, paper, and metal.
    3. FMS Ltd. avoid the use of hazardous materials and products and seek substitutions where feasible, taking steps to protect human health and environment when such materials need to be used, such as providing safe storage and appropriate emergency equipment e.g. spill kits where appropriate.
    4. Travel to other companies should be planned to be an efficient route as possible and if more than one employee needs to attend then they should travel together, in a company vehicle, as far as reasonably practicable.
    5. FMS Ltd. encourage awareness of energy consumption.
    6. This policy is communicated to all employees and is covered specifically under the company induction procedures and it should be communicated to customers and suppliers as required.

 Procedure

    1. Any opportunity for improving operations and reducing waste should be communicated to your line manager as soon as possible. All lights, equipment and air conditioning should be switched off when not in use.
    2. FMS Ltd. provide separate bins for paper waste and other recyclable materials. Any waste paper should be placed in the dedicated Biffa skip in the area at the back of the building, or clearly separated for the cleaning staff to deal with.
