At UC Blasting & Painting, we are focused on keeping the environment safe and clean to maintain the well being of employees and the surrounding ecosystem. This involves implementing environmental controls to reduce the adverse impacts of our business on the environment.
As part of our environmental commitment, our work practices are centered around reducing wastage. Not only does this help with less waste generation, it also creates less waste in total to be disposed.
Within our teams, it is every employees' task to take action to minimise adverse impacts, be aware of the consequences of their actions and to propose improvements. We are committed to reducing any negative impacts to the environment through all aspects of our business.
An engineering control practiced within UC Blasting & Painting grounds is by using a dust collection system, where the emission of fine dust is minimised by up to 99% by using this method of dust collection. Emission of clean air from the outlet of this system to the environment is within the regulatory compliance of Environmental Quality (Clean Air) Regulations 2014.
Scheduled wastes generated during work activities at UC Blasting & Painting are made sure to be properly controlled, contained, stored and disposed. Storage facilities are constructed according to the regulatory guidelines for temporary storage and management of scheduled wastes. Disposal of scheduled wastes are done through the proper channels within compliance to the Environmental Quality (Scheduled Wastes) Regulations 2005.
