Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR) in conjunction with The David J. Joseph Company and Nucor Corporation, is pleased to announce its participation in OSHA’s Safety + Sound Week, from June 12 – 18, 2017 and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries’ (ISRI’s) June 14 National Safety Stand-Down day. Throughout the week of June 12, all AMR facilities will conduct daily field-based safety awareness meetings, which will focus on three key measures needed to proactively identify and manage hazards before they cause an incident. These measures, which include teammate participation, safety leadership and an established system to find and fix hazards, are vital to incident prevention efforts. AMR is committed to making our nation’s roads safer and our “Forget the Phone” program discouraging texting while driving will also be highlighted during Safe + Sound Week.

AMR appreciates OSHA’s and ISRI’s efforts in organizing these safety events. We support such outreach initiatives that greatly enhance cooperation between OSHA, ISRI and employers to work toward the same goal: a safe and healthful workplace. Safety is AMR’s number one core value and the primary goal of our safety process is to offer a safe and healthful workplace, free of injuries and illnesses for our teammates, customers, and visitors.
