Webinar Alert: Reducing High Risk Situations—Safety Training for Waste Facility Customers


Enroll here. Available: July 17, 2018 11am PST, 2pm EST

In 2017, there were 132 fatalities in the solid waste industry. Over 70% of those fatalities involved customers or member of the public. Customers visit a waste facility with little to no awareness of the risks related to heavy equipment, scavenging, and traffic flow. In other words, most customers receive no safety training. Members of the public are unaware of the dangers involved when speeding around a collection truck or biking into a truck’s blind spot. At transfer stations and MRFs, customers might have to dump trash over an edge or into a compactor and might be tempted to scavenge in the waste for reusable items.

Join returning speaker and expert in the development of safety programs, Neal Bolton, P.E., for this webinar Reducing High-Risk Situations – Safety Training for Waste Facility Customers.

In this webinar, Bolton will discuss the statistics on customer-related accidents and fatalities, how to develop a customer safety training program, the various tools you can utilize to educate customers, and how increasing safety education can lead to improvements in operations and safety at your facility.
