2016 NWRA Safety Stand Down

Mon, Jan 25, 2016   thru Fri, Jan 29, 2016

At Participating Company Locations, ,

The 2016 NWRA Safety Stand Down, is an initiative of the National Waste & Recycling Association. This week-long training and awareness effort is focused around reducing accidents, fatalities and injuries related to truck backing incidents which represents a common challenge for the industry. The NWRA Safety Stand-Down on vehicle backing runs the week of January 25 – 29, 2016. Members of the waste and recycling industry are asked to join in NWRA’s commitment toward significantly improving safety for the waste and recycling industry by taking part in this effort.

Participation in the stand down means that your company has joined with waste and recycling companies across the country to commit to:

1. Conducting a risk assessment at job sites and review safety policies and procedures for backing.

2. Review company policies, procedures, consider enhancements, and then training employees on any changes.

3. Posting Stand Down materials to the company website, in employee meeting rooms and on social media sites.

4. Register to pledge to take part in the week-long Stand Down for safety. Participants will receive a toolkit of resources for the Stand Down upon registration.
