RPC puts environment at heart of its Safety Week

John Neath

RPC has revealed the group’s annual Safety Week will this year have the theme ‘Protecting You, Me and Our Environment’.

Employees were invited to enter a competition to choose the slogan for a week of activities in October. This year’s winning entry came from John Neath of RPC Design.

“A key focus of every Safety Week is to minimise and eliminate adverse effects that can impact on people’s safety, but at the same time we also seek to generate actions that have a positive impact as well,” said Michael Stegeman, RPC Bebo CEO and group health and safety coordinator.

“For example, in order to avoid unnecessary hazards, we focus on keeping our factories and offices clean and tidy and this naturally leads to finding effective ways to dispose of our waste with an emphasis on reuse and recycling and avoiding sending items to landfill. RPC is also a signatory to Operation Clean Sweep, the international initiative to reduce plastic pellet loss to the environment, and finding solutions to further improve our housekeeping in this area will be another important objective for colleagues during the week.”

RPC Safety Week is now in its 8th year.
