Hazard Recognition in Recycling
This includes how-to do a PPE hazard assessment, how-to recognize the hazards of and safely work around mobile equipment, the importance of proper PPE, and an understanding of the importance of the control of hazardous energy (LOTO), good housekeeping practices, recognizing fire hazards, and Hazard Communication programs. The overall benefit to workers receiving training will be a greater awareness of hazards, how to recognize them on their job site, how to create a PPE hazard assessment, and how to prevent injury through hazard recognition. The benefit to employers will be lower prevalence of job-related injury, thus a more productive workforce.
This training is being offered regionally to both ISRI and non-ISRI members. All levels of scrap recycling company employees are encouraged to attend.
