A Culture Of Safety
With our overriding goal of zero accidents, we have comprehensive safety procedures in place at all our facilities. This includes ongoing training to ensure the safety of all employees, customers, suppliers and visitors.
Advantage Metals Recycling works to create an environment to help eliminate industrial and environmental hazards for our employees and our customers. Our safety program is successful thanks to company-wide staff commitment and to its strong, continuing safety culture.
By taking a proactive rather than a reactive approach, we reduce accidents, and strive to prevent them all together. In fact, most of our facilities have gone multiple years with no injuries.
