Garbage Men & Women Doing Good in the Community
Here you will find a selection of our stories from the communities we serve and the environmental heroes who are part of the Meridian Waste team.
PPE has been a hot term nationally since early 2020, but it’s used daily in the environmental services industry. To us, PPE is more than just a face mask.
All operational employees are required to use the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). PPE is often referred to as the “last line of defense” because it is always to be used in conjunction with safe work practices. It is effective only if it is being worn properly. At a minimum, this includes, but is not limited to:
1. Hearing protection (where posted) 2. High-visibility vest (Class II or III) 3. Gloves - Cut-resistant gloves are REQUIRED when handling waste 4. Hard hat 5. Six-inch high steel or composite-toe work boots 6. Puncture-resistant boots are REQUIRED when working at landfills and transfer stations. Drivers are REQUIRED to have puncture-resistant boots 7. Safety glasses/protective eyewear - Prescription safety glasses MUST have side shields All non-operational personnel in proximity to a shop, landfill, MRF, transfer station, or on route will also be required to use appropriate PPE.
June is National Safety Month.
