STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE FOR LAMP DISPOSAL

Redline Electric & Solar, LLC follows all national, state and local guidelines on lamp recycling. In most cases we use third party recycling firms for boxed and crushed lamps. In the case that we crush our own lamps, in house, we use the Air Cycle Bulb Eater.

Air Cycle Bulb Eater

At Redline Electric & Solar, LLC we dispose of small and large quantities of mercury filled lamps using the Air Cycle Bulb Eater. The Air Cycle Bulb Eater provides a safer work environment and reduces liability by providing less mercury vapor emissions, while reducing the time and cost it takes to dispose of these lamps.

Bulb Eater Training

All Redline Electric & Solar, LLC employees must complete the Air Cycle Corporation Bulb Eater Certified Training Program, in order to be certified to use the Air Cycle Bulb Eater. This consists of reading the Bulb Eater manual and watching the Bulb Eater training video provided on the Air Cycle Website. All employees will then complete a Bulb Eater quiz and if passed will then receive an official certificate of completion for the Bulb Eater certified training program.

Use of Bulb Eater

Due to the typical high volume of lamps, crushing lamps with the bulb eater is done on job sites. Before crushing commences, the customer signs a contract stating that the customer themselves will be generating the hazardous waste, and Redline Electric & Solar, LLC will simply be facilitating the recycling process of said waste. This will require the customer to have the proper paperwork and EPA ID number, not Redline Electric & Solar, LLC. Lamps are always crushed in 55 gallon sealed drums which are properly labeled as hazardous waste with the date of the creation of the waste. Drums containing hazardous waste are never to be left in the elements, especially during summer months. If customer job is extended, drums filled with crushed lamps are not to be left on job site for more than 30 days.

Disposal of Hazardous Waste

After all lamps are crushed, environmental services are called who are licensed to transport and dispose of this hazardous waste. Some companies we use for this service include Veolia Environmental Services, Lighting Resources and Air Cycle Corporation. After said company delivers waste to a proper certified recycling plant, we receive validation of recycling, confirming the proper handling of the waste.
Please note, if lamps are crushed on job site, the barrels must stay on job site until picked up by said disposal companies. Barrels filled with crushed lamps are to be marked as “hazardous material.” Under no circumstance should any Redline Electric & Solar, LLC employee ever transport broken lamps, regardless of their containment in barrels or not.

      Purpose
      Redline Electric & Solar, LLC prides itself on professional service and customer satisfaction. As part of this, we believe that you only have one time to make a first impression and it’s important to make the right one. Often times our field personnel are the first thing the customer sees by the way of in-person contact. For this reason, we have designated acceptable appearance standards for our employees in the field.

      On the flip side, to land larger contracts, there is a portion of behind-the-scenes work that takes place and this falls on our office, or administrative, staff. Business meetings and professional contacts help us to close contracts and because of this we want our office staff to dress professionally.

      Below you will find the expectation(s) of Redline Electric & Solar, LLC regarding attire and personal appearance. We understand that each person strives to be an individual, and we are not, in any way, attempting to strip you of your desire for uniqueness.

      PURPOSE:

      Redline Electric & Solar, LLC sets out to enact a
      legally compliant, market comparable, and employee sensitive policy to allow sick
      leave where permissible. This policy has been created in accordance with The
      Fair Wages and Healthy Families Act
      of 2017.

       

      POLICY:

      Accrual:

      All employees will accrue earned paid sick
      time as follows:

       

      1.      Employees
      shall accrue one (1) hour of earned paid sick time for every thirty (30) hours
      worked.

      2.      While
      Redline Electric & Solar, LLC has 1 – 14 employees, an employee shall not
      accrue, or use, more than twenty-four (24) hours of earned paid sick time per
      year.

      3.      While
      Redline Electric & Solar, LLC has 15 or more employees, an employee shall
      not accrue, or use, more than forty (40) hours of earned paid sick time per
      year.

      4.      Accrual
      of earned paid sick time will begin at the commencement of employment, or after
      the effective date of this policy.

      5.      Although
      accrual will begin upon the instantiation of hire, employees must wait until
      the ninetieth (90) calendar day after commencing employment before using
      accrued earned paid sick time.

      6.      Earned
      paid sick time will not be carried over to the following year as Redline
      Electric & Solar, LLC shall pay employees their remaining accrual amounts
      before the close of the year.

      7.      Upon
      separation of employment, should the same employee be rehired within nine (9)
      months of separation, previously accrued earned paid sick time will be
      reinstated.

      Notice:

      When the use of earned paid sick time is foreseeable, the
      employee shall make a good faith effort to provide notice of the need for such
      time. A reasonable period of time is considered two (2) hours before the
      beginning of a shift. Furthermore, the employee shall make a reasonable effort
      to schedule the use of earned paid sick time in a manner that does not unduly
      disrupt the operations of Redline Electric & Solar, LLC.

       

      Records Retention:

      Human resources, or Redline Electric & Solar, LLC designee,
      shall retain records of the following for a minimum period of four (4) years:

      ·        
      All
      time(s) worked and time clock entries

      ·        
      Earned
      paid sick time

      ·        
      Holiday
      hours

      ·        
      Vacation
      hours

      ·        
      Family
      Medical Leave Act (FMLA) hours

      Usage & Payment(s):

      I.                  
      Earned
      paid sick time shall be used for:

      1.      Employee’s
      mental or physical illness, injury or health condition.

      2.      Care
      of a family member with a mental or physical illness, injury or health
      condition.

      3.      Public
      health emergency.

      4.      Employee’s
      self or family member who is experiencing a domestic violence, sexual violence,
      abuse or stalking situation wherein the employee must obtain:

      a.       Medical
      attention needed to recover from physical or psychological injury or disability
      caused by domestic violence, sexual violence, abuse, or stalking;

      b.      Services
      from a domestic violence or sexual violence program or victim services
      organization;

      c.       Psychological
      or other counseling;

      d.      Relocation
      or taking steps to secure an existing home due to the domestic violence, sexual
      violence, abuse or stalking; or

      e.       Legal
      services, including but not limited to preparing for or participating in any
      civil or criminal legal proceeding related to or resulting from the domestic
      violence, sexual violence, abuse or stalking.

       

      II.               
      Upon
      the anniversary date of the employee’s hire date, Redline Electric & Solar,
      LLC shall pay the employee their remaining hour(s) of their minimum twenty-four
      (24) hours they are issued throughout the year. The payout amount shall not
      exceed twenty-four (24) hours regardless of how many hours of earned paid sick
      time are attributed to their account.

       

      For
      example, should an employee be issued forty (40) hours and use fourteen (14) of
      them; the employee will be paid out for ten (10) hours of regular pay at their year
      anniversary. This is because twenty-four (24) hours is the maximum amount to be
      paid out upon the anniversary of an employee. Anything beyond twenty-four (24)
      hours will not be rolled over or paid out and will be lost if not used
      throughout the course of the employee’s year.

       

      III.            
      Redline
      Electric & Solar, LLC will not pay out any earned paid sick time upon
      separation of employment. This policy does not constitute a contract, nor
      should it be misunderstood that an employee is entitled to separation monies if
      they have earned paid sick time on the books.

       

      IV.            
      Should
      an employee use earned paid sick time three (3) days in a row, Redline Electric
      & Solar, LLC may require documentation to support the employee’s purpose
      for absenteeism. For privacy and confidentiality purposes, Redline Electric
      & Solar, LLC does not require specifics regarding the nature of the
      situation. However, reasonable documentation includes a copy of:

      1.      A
      police report

      2.      A
      protective order; injunction against harassment; a general court order; or
      other evidence from a court or prosecuting attorney

      3.       A
      signed statement from a domestic violence or sexual violence program or victim
      services organization

      4.      A
      signed statement from a witness advocate

      5.      A
      signed statement from an attorney, member of the clergy, or a medical or other

      6.      An
      employee’s written statement affirming that the employee or the employee’s
      family member is a victim of domestic violence, sexual violence, abuse, or
      stalking, and that the leave was taken for one of those purposes.

      Redaction of details may be
      permitted and will not be questioned unless it so infringes upon the document
      as to leave question regarding its authenticity. 

       

      V.               
      For
      the sake of confidentiality and nondisclosure, should Redline Electric &
      Solar, LLC or designee have, in its possession or knowledge, any substantive
      information regarding an employee’s condition or circumstances, as it relates
      to elements of this policy, Redline Electric & Solar, LLC will not release
      information to another employee without the written consent of the employee to
      which the information pertains. Furthermore, Redline Electric & Solar, LLC
      will not surrender information to any governing body or agency unless required
      to do so through a valid court order.

      that you consult with your supervisor.
