Hill-Rom is dedicated to business practices that are environmentally sound. We work to find innovative solutions to reduce use of materials throughout our operations. We are committed to the responsible management, use and disposal of chemicals used in the manufacture of our products. Through trade-in or buy back, many of our products are refurbished and returned to the market or the materials recycled to reclaim metals, plastics and electronic components. In addition to our recycling efforts, we pursue environmentally sound facilities management practices.
Teams work throughout Hill-Rom facilities and in thefield to assess safety on an ongoing basis and implement continuous improvement to ensure a safe and efficient workplace for all of our employees.
