Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR) is pleased to announce its participation in OSHA’s National Safety Stand Down for Fall Prevention. During the week of June 2, every AMR recycling facility conducted daily field-based safety meetings focusing on key aspects of fall prevention. This includes fall hazard recognition, choosing the proper fall prevention systems, ladder safety, maintaining three-point contact, preventing slips/trips/falls on the same level and a focused review of personal fall arrest gear.
AMR appreciates OSHA’s efforts in organizing this event. OSHA supports such outreach initiatives that greatly enhance cooperation between the agency and employers to work toward the same goal: a safe and healthful workplace.
AMR buys common household ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal items like automobiles, appliances, sheet metal, aluminum cans and other aluminum, copper and brass products.
