Reduce Fire Damage and Losses in the Recycled Materials Industry

Meeting Room 201 AB: Level 2

Track: Safety and Security 🛈Topics may include those focused on protecting the health and life of recycling facility employees, customers, visitors, contractors, drivers, and the surrounding community; OSHA compliance; disaster preparedness; hazardous materials management; hazard recognition; safety culture; law enforcement; theft; cybersecurity; and infectious disease.
Fire detection and a SAFE response are just as important as prevention and mitigation. Doing the proper planning and having the best tools on-hand are keys to success in case of a thermal event at your business. Learn about ways to safely respond and control fires. And be prepared to extinguish and prevent all classes of fire with NFPA 18A, the standard for Fire Control and Vapor Mitigation. This session will include a focus on li-ion batteries and other fuel and ignition sources commonly found in recycling operations.
