Dec 23, 2020 | Planning

National surveys indicate that 90% of waste facilities DO NOT have all the required documents up-to-date and in place! And those that have them may not even be using them. That means that 90% of our workers in the industry are working without clear direction. And then we wonder why we are the 5th most dangerous industry!

You may have a health and safety plan, but when was it last updated? Has your team read the plan, and when did they read it? When are they required to review it?
