Cheryl McMullen | Apr 11, 2017 Much is said and done in the industry to keep drivers and others safe during solid waste and recycling collection. From Slow Down to Get Around legislation (now in 13 states) and safe driver programs to on-board technology and new mechanized equipment over the years, a lot is being put in place to protect those collecting solid waste. Still, hazards remain. And for those involved in post-collections waste handling, education, planning and hyper-vigilance can be the difference in a safe working environment. Post-collections facilities include transfer stations, recycling centers and materials recovery facilities (MRFs). According to Jerry Peters, corporate Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance manager for Rumpke Consolidated Cos., while transfer stations have their hazards, the risk is lowered by the fact that the amount of time drivers spend at those facilities is limited. The idea is to get in, transfer waste and get out. However, there is the potential for traffic injury, especially with heavy equipment and pedestrians. A 27,000-pound wheel loader versus a person is not going to end well, says Peters. Overcrowded driving areas can increase risk at these facilities, he says. Planning out proper employee walkways and overseeing a controlled environment is a must.
