Safety

Safety is a big issue, especially at waste facilities

Safety

Blue Ridge Services created the industry's most comprehensive safety training programTough financial times mean tight budgets. But less of a budget doesn’t change the fact that your crew still needs to work… and still needs to know how to work safely.

We know money is tight, so we continue to offer our large library of safety training materials and resources for a competitive price and in a variety of formats.

In 2000, nearly 4 million American workers were injured and over 5,000 workers died as a result of work-related accidents. Safety is a big issue, especially at landfills, where the mix of heavy equipment, traffic and trash can often spell disaster for the untrained worker.

Neal Bolton, owner of Blue Ridge Services and author of the Handbook of Landfill Operations, has created the industry's most comprehensive and practical safety training program.  In addition to his nuts-and-bolts approach to landfill efficiency, safety, and operations, Neal also presents information in a practical, hands-on approach. You come away with practical information that you can apply immediately.

At Blue Ridge Services, we have been finding innovative ways to bring training to you and your crew, for an affordable price. From the bestselling Handbook of Landfill Operations to our safety training video series, featuring more than 80 topics, to our comprehensive operator training programs, Blue Ridge Services has been a leader in waste facility training for more than 25 years.
