Register for ISRI’s Safety Webinar Understanding Lead Exposures and the Hazards to Your Employees and Company Today!

On Thursday, September 19th at 4:00 p.m. (eastern)  ISRI ‘s Live Learning Center will host an important webinar that will discuss the hazards of lead exposure and how to manage the risks it poses to your company and employees.  The webinar will feature ISRI’s director of safety, John Gilstrap.  Gilstrap will present an overview of the hazards of lead, some exposure control strategies and what the law actually requires in the management of lead exposures.  He will also discuss the increase in OSHA enforcement and the stunning fines it is assessing to companies that fail to test for hazards and/or fail to mitigate the hazards when they are found.  Lead exposure is a common hazard in virtually all corners of the recycling industry.  If your company uses cutting torches, handles automotive radiators, breaks cathode ray tubes, or performs any number of other common processing operations, there is a reasonable likelihood that your employees are over-exposed to lead.
