Free ISRI Hazard Recognition in Recycling Training Class Coming to New England

This free training course is relevant to recyclers across all commodities who would like employees to learn more about hazard recognition and mitigation in the operations environment.

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; 
  • An understanding of the importance of the control of hazardous energy (LOTO);
  • Good housekeeping practices;
  • How to recognize fire hazards; and
  • Hazard communication in the workplace.

Those attending the class will also learn what a hazard assessment is and through group work how to build a PPE job hazard assessment.

The training class will be hosted by E.L. Harvey & Sons in Westborough MA on March 30, 2017. The class will begin at 9:00 a.m. ET and last 7.5 hours. There is no cost to attend this class and lunch will be provided.

The class is aimed at the operations, maintenance, safety, and supervisory employee. However, it is open to any and ALL levels of employees who might benefit from the information. ISRI believes that the overall benefit to workers receiving this 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

Please email ISRI Vice President of Safety Terry Cirone with your name and company information if you plan on attending.

Additional Hazard Recognition in Recycling Training classes will be held across the different chapters and regions over the course of the coming year. Contact Tony Smith or Terry Cirone for additional information.
