PPE & COVID-19

During the COVID-19 crisis, recycling plants must be extra vigilant about employee safety, both typical practices and new considerations during the outbreak. Brian Haney, VP of Safety & Compliance offers these recommendations.

  • Document PPE choices with a hazard assessment specific to each task.
  • For respiratory protection, know what your employees are exposed to and at what levels.

  • Allow cloth masks, surgical masks or even bandanas for comfort.
  • PPE is your last line of defense. Address physical barriers and social distancing first.
