The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has released its first-ever “Safety Resources Catalog,” a directory of all the safety-related resources offered by the association to help its members operate safely.
ISRI says the catalog, which is available online and in hardcopy, is the most comprehensive listing of safety resources available to the recycling industry, with more than 150 different safety-related videos, manuals, handbooks, posters and decals and train-the-trainer materials, catalogued by safety topic for use by ISRI members.
“ISRI offers a broad menu of safety services and tools for its members, from on-site multiday training by ISRI’s professional safety staff to training guides, of which recyclers can and should take advantage,” says Robin Wiener, president of ISRI. “The catalog, which will be updated as new products become available, demonstrates the industry’s strong commitment to safety as a core value. It is designed to be easy to navigate so companies can quickly identify which resources best meet their needs. There is simply no excuse for not taking advantage of all that ISRI provides when it comes to safety.”
The tools are categorized by the 21 Key Elements of a Safety Management Program, including confined spaces, driver training, fall protection, fire prevention, lockout/tagout, machine guarding and personal protective equipment.
