Electronic Waste Dismantlers, Refurbishes And Recyclers

(PBDEs in WEEE) Improper dismantling or removal of electronic components (treated with flame retardants such as PBDEs) can lead to the inhalation of contaminated dust

How to prevent Electronic Waste Dismantlers, Refurbishes And Recyclers

  • Pay attention to manual removal of hazardous components and their contained substances, some of which are hazardous, so they are not processed together and are not released or mixed with other materials
  • Protection of worker health and safety and the environment is necessary in such conditions, including engineered control systems, personal protective equipment such as gloves and eye protection, and more complex measures such as respiratory masks
  • Consider the use of detailed ESM guidance on refurbishment activities or standards can be accessed at the respective PACE and MPPI guidance documents on material recovery and recyclinghttp://www.basel.int/Portals/4/download.aspx?d=UNEP-CHW.11-INF-12-Rev.1.English.pdf
  • Employees should also take extra precautions to avoid “take home” PBDE or other contaminant dust by changing cloths, washing separately and washing exposed skin and hair after work and before entering your home.
