Health and safety should be a priority for any vehicle recycling operation. To draw attention to this, ATF Professional and The Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (IOSH) are inviting you to attend a free webinar focusing on some of the dangers of working in a yard that vehicle recyclers need to be aware of.
Hosted by IOSH and ATF Professional on the 25th of August at 12 PM (BST), the webinar will look at the present and the future of Health and Safety for the automotive recycling industry.
Danny Swygart, Roy Johnson, Regional Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Managers, EMR (European Metal Recycling) Group will make the first presentation. They will be focussing on the top five hazards in today’s yards.
The second part of the webinar will be provided by Andy Latham of Salvage Wire, who will discuss the safety implications of high voltage for the automotive industry, including vehicle technicians, first responders, recovery companies, salvage and dismantling and fleet operations.
There will be the opportunity to ask the presenters questions at the end of each session.
The webinar will be just over an hour long and will introduce some of the many health and safety challenges faced by vehicle recyclers throughout the globe. The event is international, free to attend and open to all involved in the auto recycling community.
Haydn Davies, the editor of ATF Professional, said:
‘Wherever you are, and whoever you are, if you are involved in vehicle recycling, the thing that we all have in common is keeping ourselves and colleagues safe.
This webinar has been organised to draw awareness to health and safety in the vehicle recycling industry, now and in the future. There are many safety challenges that need to be faced, and we hope that this will be the first part of many webinars on this subject. It is great to organise this event alongside IOSH, whose members, I hope, will help to raise the quality of health and safety within our industry.”
