If you work in the US waste industry, you already know it is one of the top five most dangerous industries in the country. So dangerous in fact, that there were 160 fatalities in the industry in 2018, from preventable accidents.
Catchy slogans and marketing campaigns are helpful, but they don’t address the root of the problem. More than 95% of waste facilities in the country do not have updated comprehensive safety and operations documents. That means waste workers don’t have the full info on things like general safety, standard operating procedures (SOPs), emergency response and equipment maintenance.
So what’s the solution?
At Blue Ridge Services, our team of safety experts can create a Safety Essentials Package for your waste facility. All documents are customized, relevant and practical. Check out the following video to learn more!
