The David J. Joseph Company (DJJ) is pleased to announce its participation in the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries’ (ISRI’s) June 24 National Safety Stand-Down day. On June 24, all 79 DJJ recycling facilities will conduct field-based safety awareness meetings, which will focus on improving the safety process through employee involvement. The meetings will also include ISRI’s recommended emphasis on mobile equipment, lockout tagout, confined spaces, machine guarding, and fall prevention. In advance of the one-hour meeting, DJJ is asking each recycling facility employee to recommend at least one idea to improve safety in the workplace or in a task performed. DJJ will be discussing selected recommendations during the safety-awareness meetings.
DJJ appreciates ISRI’s efforts in organizing this event. Safety is DJJ’s number one core value and providing a safe environment for employees and customers is paramount to DJJ’s success.
