What Are SHERPA Critical Waste Facility Plans?
SHERPA Critical Waste Facility Plans are the backbone of your facility. They provide a guide for your team to work safer and more efficiently. Properly implemented, they can provide a buffer against regulatory violations, lawsuits, lost profits, and safety risks.

90% OF WASTE FACILITIES 
DO NOT HAVE UPDATED, COMPREHENSIVE PLANS IN PLACE FOR
SAFETY, OPERATIONS, EQUIPMENT, AND HUMAN RESOURCES.*

*According to national webinar polls.

Where does your facility rank? Do you have some plans in place, but are lacking others? Do you have a safety plan just gathering dust on your bookshelf? Are your operators following comprehensive equipment maintenance plans?

We can help address these challenges. We understand that running a waste facility is a big job. And we want to help make your job just a little bit easier.

Safety is essential to every waste facility operation. Your crew and customers’ lives depend on it. Let us help you create customized, actionable safety plans that will help keep your facility running safely.
