Developing Fire Prevention and Safety Strategies for the Recycling Industry – COSE Members Only

March 31, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Exclusively for Circle of Safety Excellence (COSE) Members Only

Wednesday, March 31, 2021 | 2 – 3 p.m. EST


During this webinar, a panel of fire safety experts will provide you with sound fire prevention and safety guidance in the following areas:

  1. Effective fire prevention and emergency action plans
  2. Pile management
  3. Employee engagement – How to make those most responsible for the work environment a part of the safety process.
  4. It’s the little things – Most major emergencies are the result of a series of overlooked details that come together to create a devastating outcome. Prevent the major issues by addressing the details.
  5. The ship’s captain – The captain of the California dive boat (Conception) was charged with 34 counts of manslaughter because he allegedly failed to provide proper training, provide a proper watch, and conduct emergency drills. The fire started as a result of overloaded electrical outlets. If a disaster occurs in your scrapyard, who is your “Ship’s Captain” and will he be guilty of similar oversights?
