nwra

Action is proud to host the 2018 NWRA Professional Development Series for New Jersey. Director of Risk Management, Sal Mastrian, will host the free half-day event. The goal of this event is to improve safety standards and compliance across the waste industry. The event will take place on Wednesday, July 11, 2018.

Safety PDS are educational and capability building sessions, which were scheduled in regional locations to bring local industry companies together to build their capabilities in the areas of regulatory compliance, Safety Culture, use of technology, and Distracted Driving. The event topics and materials were developed in direct response to the Safety Committee, Small Hauler’s Roundtable discussions and reviews held throughout the year. These events, also, give our Supplier Members a chance to present in the area of their subject matter expertise.

In addition to our speakers, the event will also feature a roundtable identifying how NWRA can support your safety needs. NWRA will use this information to achieve its Strategic Safety Initiatives. These include removing the collection industry from the top 10 most dangerous occupations, reducing distracted driving incidents and finding collaboration opportunities to leverage safety efforts.

Tentative Educational Sessions include:

  • Safety Culture
  • Round Table Discussion
  • ANSI Z245 and You
  • Best Practices
  • Safety and Compliance Topics Employers Need to Know

  • DOT Compliance Topics

The presentations provided safety personnel, operations managers, and front line supervisors with a basic understanding of their safety, compliance, and, most importantly, their individual responsibility to the employees’ personal health and wellbeing. The topics included: OSHA and DOT compliance, Eliminating Distractions, Fleet Management Technology, and Operational Excellence Process Improvement, with a connecting theme of Safety Culture and Employee Engagement. Scalable solutions were provided to the attendees that will empower them to improve their safety management systems and strongly engage employees for solution-based results.
