We ensure that suitable arrangements are in place to cover employees engaged in work remote from the main company site. Our systems provide for the routine inspection and testing of equipment and machinery and for ensuring that action is promptly taken to address any required actions.

It is the policy of Haughey Metals Ltd to:

The Health & Safety Policy has been defined and endorsed by the company’s senior management and has been communicated throughout the organisation by means of documented procedures in the Quality Systems Manual, and is included in all site document packs, is displayed on staff notice boards and detailed in all staff and site inductions.

Our core aims


We endeavor to:

  • Comply with and exceed all relevant environmental regulatory requirements.
  • Continually improve and monitor our environmental performance.
  • Continually improve and reduce all environmental impacts.
  • Incorporate environmental factors into business decisions.
  • Increase employee awareness and training.

We have a Waste Management Plan in place.  It is constantly evolving as new recycling technologies and economic conditions arise.  At present all material brought to our works is graded, and stored in segregated areas.

Ferrous metal is separated from non-ferrous metal.  The ferrous metal is then processed as furnace feed for steel mills.  Any dirt or stones are removed at this stage.  Stones are then removed from dirt and sold as aggregate the remaining dirt is land filled.  The non-ferrous scrap is separated into grades of aluminium, copper, stainless steel, brass, lead, electrical cable etc.  Any foreign material e.g.; wood, glass rubber, plastic etc is removed and where possible is recycled.  The non-ferrous metals are then baled, shredded or cut according to customer requirements.
