  • Any industry that processes 11 million tonnes of metal every year* is going to come with some inherent health and safety considerations. Then when you factor in that we’re specifically talking about scrap metal, in all its various weights, shapes, sizes, surfaces and potentially sharp edges, you can multiply those safety concerns considerably.
