In any industry, but especially in one where workers are regularly operating motorized heavy equipment, workers’ safety needs to be a top consideration. Due to inherent operating conditions, the Transportation Industry has jobs with some of the highest fatalities. OSHA governs workers’ health and safety in the transportation industry, tasking employers with establishing compliant safety protocols for warehouses, docks, construction sites, and any other place that their drivers go while on the job.
The transportation industry also has unique needs in its waste management process. Trucks that move hazardous waste are bound by regulations from several federal, state, and local authorities. These agencies may have overlapping authorities, but transporters must comply with whichever regulations are the most stringent.
To ensure that you are in compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations, Clean Management Environmental Group, Inc. can assess your facility and transportation fleet, manage any waste generated, and train employees in OSHA-compliant conduct. Contact Clean Management to learn more about how we can assist your business in the transportation industry.
