The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has agreed to jointly distribute a solid waste industry safety flyer or bill stuffer that the National Solid Wastes Management Association (NSWMA) developed with the National Institute of Safety and Occupational Health (NIOSH). NSWMA and SWANA plan to distribute the piece to their members along with other industry safety resources, as part of their ongoing effort to reduce fatalities, accidents and injuries involving solid waste workers or equipment. NSWMA has been distributing the flyer for about a year, but with this partnership, SWANA will expand the reach of the Slow Down to Get Around program to SWANA’s members and their customers.
The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) is an organization of more than 10,000 public and private sector professionals committed to advancing from solid waste management to resource management through their shared emphasis on education, advocacy and research. For close to 60 years, SWANA has been the leading association in the solid waste management field. SWANA serves industry professionals through technical conferences, certifications, publications and a large offering of technical training courses.
