Blue Ridge Services: Safety Training for the Solid Waste Industry

SWANA has partnered with Blue Ridge Services, Inc. to bring you comprehensive safety training for solid waste industry workers and operators. Safety is a big deal, especially at waste facilities, where the mix of heavy equipment, traffic and waste can often spell disaster for the untrained worker.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were 95 deaths in 2018 related to the solid waste management industry. You have a responsibility to your employees, your customers and yourself to know the safety hazards and know how to protect against injury and damage.
