EH&S Policy Statement
It is the policy of Colt to operate its business as a sound environmental corporate citizen in compliance with ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and R2. We will maintain a health & safety program conforming to the best practices within the scrap recycling industry. Our goal is to ensure the covered facilities and operations are in compliance with federal, state and local environmental standards, and to continually improve the overall system. We believe that balance can and should be sustained between environmental, safety and health goals and the facility’s economic health.
