The Bpf Rotational Moulding Group

The British Plastics Federation (BPF) Rotational Moulding Group represents and promotes the interests of all those involved in the rotational moulding process – moulders, material suppliers, machinery, and ancillary equipment manufacturers and service providers.

The BPF has played a leading role worldwide by producing the first Rotational Moulding H&S guidance in the world, the very first document to tackle health and safety issues in the rotational moulding industry and to provide a list of what to assess and what to look for when a rotational moulder is carrying out a risk assessment. The document gives advice on the safeguarding requirements for foreseeable hazards associated with rotational moulding machines, including whole body entrapment. We are now very pleased to say that the guidance has been approved by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and it is now published on the BPF website. The BPF strongly believes that good H&S practice should be available to everybody and it has decided to make its Rotational Moulding H&S Guidance available for free. If you wish to obtain a copy, please request it by emailing
Dr. Sara Cammarano at scammarano@bpf.co.uk.

Following on from the publication of the guidance, the BPF decided to launch its first H&S award for the rotational moulding industry to recognise the efforts being made by companies to improve H&S programmes and initiatives within their own organisations or for the benefit of other industry specific companies. The award was open to BPF member companies operating within the Rotational Moulding Industry throughout the United Kingdom and it is to recognise considerable and measurable step changes in HS&E policy adherence.

The BPF is pleased to announce that the winner of its first H&S award is Rototek that won “in recognition and commendation of the considerable and measurable step changes in H&S policy adherence and specific initiatives to improve processing/manufacturing operations for the individuals who operate within the industry sector”. Runner up was Lysis Technology that was commented for its effort to replace volatile solvents, especially for developing Protolitte together
with C4 Polymers.
