AMR’s Sixteen Recycling Facilities Stand Down for Safety

Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR) is pleased to announce its participation in ISRI’s June 24 National Safety Stand-Down day.  From 7 to 8 a.m. CST, all sixteen AMR recycling facilities will conduct field-based safety awareness meetings focusing on improving the AMR safety process through employee involvement.  The meetings will also include ISRI’s recommended emphasis on mobile equipment, lockout tagout, confined spaces and machine guarding, and fall prevention.   In advance of the one-hour meeting, AMR is asking each employee to name at least one suggestion to improve safety in the workplace or in a task performed. AMR is discussing selected recommendations submitted by employees during the meetings.

AMR appreciates ISRI’s efforts in organizing this event.  AMR supports such outreach initiatives that greatly enhance cooperation between the agency and employers to work toward the same goal:   a safe and healthful workplace.
