The David J. Joseph Company (DJJ) is pleased to announce its participation in the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries’ (ISRI’s) June 16 National Safety Stand-Down day. On June 15, all DJJ recycling facilities will conduct field-based safety awareness meetings, which will focus on improving the DJJ safety process through employee involvement. The meetings will also include ISRI’s recommended emphasis on mobile equipment safety. Ongoing and effective safety training is essential to the success of DJJ’s safety program.
DJJ appreciates ISRI’s efforts in organizing this event. We support such outreach initiatives that greatly enhance cooperation between ISRI and employers to work toward the same goal: a safe and healthful workplace. Safety is DJJ’s number one core value and the primary goal of our safety process is to offer a safe and healthful workplace, free of injuries and illnesses for our teammates, customers, and visitors.
