ISRI Member Becker Iron & Metal hosted Illinois Lt. Governor Sanguinetti for a tour of their recycling yard in Venice, Illinois as the featured Illinois Company to kick off the Illinois Department of Labor’s (IDOL) Labor Day weekend.
Becker Iron & Metal is an OSHA SHARP certified facility and it was through their exceptional work and contacts within OSHA that the company’s QEH&S Director Lisa Dunn was able to arrange the Lt. Governor’s visit. The Lt. Governor was engaging and inquisitive about the industry and some of its policy concerns such as those dealing with metals theft. Dan Becker reports that he was also able to utilize the opportunity to strengthen relationships with the state’s Acting Director and Assistant Director of the Department of Labor and offer ISRI as a resource as well.
