Abstract This booklet is aimed at enterprises involved in the disposal of used lamps (including retailers, neighbourhood waste collection centres, electricians, refuse collection centres, large users and recycling enterprises) as well as at occupational safety and health specialists. Its objective is to provide guidance for occupational hazard evaluation during the various phases of the elimination chain (collection, sorting, regrouping and transport). It proposes solutions for reducing risks during each step.
