This year on Wednesday June 14, 2023, ISRI will be holding the annual industry Safety Stand Down Day. On this day we are asking all those involved in the recyclable materials industry to dedicate at least one-hour of their workday to safety conversations and activities. Take this time to recognize the men and women who work at your facilities. Recognize them for the hard work and dedication that they bring to their jobs every day. This is the eighth year that ISRI has asked members to dedicate this time to health and safety. In the past, we have had members share with us the following activities:
- First aid and CPR training classes.
- Hazard recognition and awareness in the field.
- Mobile equipment blind spot education and training.
- Vehicle inspection education and training.
- Review of your company’s lock-out, tag-out, try-out program.
OSHA’s Safe + Sound campaign focuses on three pillars that form a strong health and safety program: management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards. Please take a few minutes to review how the campaign can help your operations and your business’ health and safety strategy and programming. Feel free to add the following web links and materials to your resource library and files.
Let us know how you celebrate ISRI’s recycling industry Safety Stand-Down Day. Send us photos and tell us about what you and your teammates did. Whatever you choose to do we appreciate you working safely every day. For more information contact ISRI’s safety team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
