Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
MPC, an IT asset disposition and lifecycle management company, is working with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), a branch of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to recommend best practices in electronics processing facilities.
For over 30 years, MPC has led the industry in responsible electronics recycling, demanufacturing and refurbishing processes. By continually undergoing and passing audits with industry watchdog organizations and other governing bodies and regulations, MPC's dedication to providing trusted, secure and environmentally sound services to its customers has allowed the company to thrive.
Based on the company’s longevity and reputation in the marketplace, MPC was pleased to invite NIOSH to review its operations for use in recommending standards within the industry for others to follow.
In April, industrial hygienists, medical residents, and seasoned health experts from NIOSH visited MPC's facilities to begin their evaluation and will continue testing through June. The evaluation will assist in recommending best practices for occupational safety and health for electronics processing companies to go above and beyond current regulatory standards.
"We hope other companies will follow suit to promote the best possible health outcomes for employees," said Theresa Bauer, Director of Compliance at MPC. "Working with NIOSH asserts yet again that MPC is an industry leader for environmental, health and safety practices."
