has direct impacts associated with extraction and indirect
impacts connected with the smelting of the ore. Similarly,
the smelting has direct impacts of its own particular process
and the indirect impacts are those related to the extraction
and transportation of the ore.
Wherever you work
there are impacts caused directly by what you do as well as indirect impacts of
our processes. The indirect impacts of our own processes, and others, form a chain
for very indirect impacts!
all activities have an impact on the environment at some point
- but not necessarily at your site. These parts - or functions
of work, all have indirect impacts. These functions should
not be confused with 'aspects' of work, which we usually mean
those parts which we have direct control over.
have less control over the functions of work that create indirect
are several functions of work that create indirect impacts.
We need to look into each function to see how the environmental
impacts are created and where they appear.
