ISWA invites you to their webinar

Health and Safety of Solid Waste Management Workers and Employers

About this webinar

Join us on 13th May for the second in our series of webinars on waste management and COVID-19.

As much of the world goes into lockdown, the workload and pressure on the municipal waste management industry increases due to significant rises in household consumption. Waste management has been classed as an essential public service in most countries, which means waste management professionals must navigate the health and safety risks related to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Though information about the virus is still evolving, ISWA, in partnership with our National Members in North America (SWANA) and United Kingdom (CIWM) will discuss the latest guidelines and advice for the industry. This to ensure that waste workers, especially frontline collection and processing employees, are afforded maximum protection and remain safe, from infection and can support communities in mitigating the spread of the virus.

´╗┐Who is this webinar for?

Employers and contractors looking to properly equip and ensure the safety of their frontline waste workers. But also the general public as we look to raise awareness and respect essential everyday heroes.
