River Metals Recycling (RMR) is pleased to announce its participation in OSHA’s National Safety Stand Down for Fall Prevention.  During the week of June 2, every RMR recycling facility will conduct daily field-based safety meetings focusing on key aspects of fall prevention.   This includes fall hazard recognition, choosing the proper fall prevention systems, ladder safety, maintaining three-point contact, preventing slips/trips/falls on the same level and a focused review of personal fall arrest gear.

RMR appreciates OSHA’s efforts in organizing this event.  We support such outreach initiatives that greatly enhance cooperation between the agency and employers to work toward the same goal:   a safe and healthful workplace.
