Gold Medal To Participate In The 2016 NWRA Back To School Safety Stand Down
Deptford, New Jersey — Gold Medal Environmental, a growing trash removal, dumpster rental and recycling services company in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, today announced that it will be participating in the Back To School Safety Stand Down event during the week of August 22, 2016. The event is sponsored by the National Waste & Recycling Association (“NWRA”).
Back To School Safety Stand Down Event
August means the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year. There are more buses and cars on the roads. Waste and recycling collection workers will be sharing the roads, and will be taking added safety precautions to protect students, teachers and families from harm. Historically, back to school time also means that school zone accidents increase significantly. Participating in the Back To School Stand Down gives Gold Medal another opportunity to further educate and train its employees on safety issues. The Gold Medal Team is excited about this program.
Joe Briarton, Gold Medal’s Vice President of Operations, said, “Since joining Gold Medal in June 2016, I have aggressively implemented programs focused on improving safety at all of our facilities. We are also currently developing safety training rooms, procedures, manuals and an employee awards program, which we will begin rolling out in August 2016.” He added, “The Back To School Stand Down event is important to us and we are excited to be participating in the program. All of our employees will benefit from the educational materials provided, and we thank the National Waste & Recycling Association for sponsoring the event.”
NWRA’s Back to School Safety Stand Down will provide information and guidance material to address driver distractions, benchmarked successful practices and operations planning for waste and recycling personnel to improve safety in school zones and bus stops.
