Waste Collectors Safety Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Waste collection has historically been a dangerous job. The overall safety of the job has improved in the last ten to fifteen years as more trucks have been equipped with mechanical collection arms that minimize the collector’s exposure to physical hazards outside the truck. Even so, waste collection still carries a number of hazards which training in safe work practices can minimize. Workers who successfully complete this course will know about the major physical and exposure hazards associated with municipal waste collection. Learners will be able to identify the physical and health hazards of waste collection and their preventative measures, and identify safe driving practices required during municipal waste collection. This course is intended for municipal waste collectors and managers.
