KPA’s training solutions work together to help you ensure training compliance with regulators as well as to provide the additional information employees need to reduce incidents and accidents.

Workers at a scrap recycling facility face multiple dangers:

  • Exposure to hazardous materials and substances
  • Use of heavy equipment including conveyors, shredders, and balers
  • Constant vehicle traffic including rail, heavy trucks, and customers entering and leaving the yard
  • Moving equipment including forklifts and cranes
  • Weather-related dangers like heat and cold exposure, or precipitation

Understanding these risks and having a comprehensive training program in place to safeguard your employees, is critical to ensuring the safe and productive operation of your facility.
