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 recycled 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.
We will be circulating more information and resources over the coming weeks.
