Workers at a scrap recycling facility face multiple dangers:
- Exposure to hazardous materials and substances
- Use of heavy equipment including conveyors, shredders, and balers
- Constant vehicle traffic including rail, heavy trucks, and customers entering and leaving the yard
- Moving equipment including forklifts and cranes
- Weather-related dangers like heat and cold exposure, or precipitation
Understanding these risks and having a comprehensive training program in place to safeguard your employees, is critical to ensuring the safe and productive operation of your facility.
