Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc.

ISRI Safety Environmental Council (ISEC)

As the primary professional development forum for safety

and environmental professionals in the recycling industry,

ISEC attracted nearly 150 attendees to its spring and fall

conferences in 2015. Issues that were discussed include

leading violations in scrap recycling yards, proper dust

management, fall prevention, the relationship between

transformational leadership and safety outcomes, the

economics of a safety program, appliance recycling, met-

als theft prevention, handling pressurized cylinders, roll-

off safety, and the definition of solid waste. ISRI’s Spring

2016 ISEC forum will take place May 3-5 in Cleveland, and

we hope you will join us!

Outreach Services and Training

Each year, ISRI provides its members free outreach

services focused on operational safety. These services

have become a great way for ISRI members to receive

on-site guidance to build stronger safety programs at

their facilities. In 2015, ISRI’s Safety team visited nearly

100 ISRI members, providing Safety Management Blue-

prints, 10-Hour Safety Training sessions, Transportation

Assessments, and Material Handler Train-the-Trainer

courses to thousands of employees across the industry.

In the Field

In June 2015, ISRI’s Mid Atlantic Chapter held its

first Safety Summit in York, PA. Thirty-six employ-

ees from 17 ISRI member companies participated

in the summit. The summit included breakout

sessions focusing on improving powered truck in-

dustrial safety program, understanding confined

space entry protocol, implementing lock-out/

tag-out, and working with outside contractors,

vendors, and customers at your facility.
