Reducing Accidents in the Waste Industry

An in-depth look at collision mitigation systems and how they reduce struck-by accidents from blind zones on waste industry vehicles.

Dear Waste Professional,

The waste & recycling collection industry is a necessity for modern day life. It is also one of the most dangerous. In fact, the waste & recycling industry is the fifth most dangerous occupation in the United States. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), workers in solid waste collection were also in the top three job classifications to have the highest number of nonfatal injuries and illnesses, most caused by overexertion, being struck-by, striking against, or being compressed in equipment.

Our friends at PRECO Electronics provided this eBook to educate waste collection firms about vehicle accidents and ways to prevent them in order to keep your collection routes safe.

Why do these accidents happen? One key reason is the blind spots inherent in waste collection trucks and other heavy equipment used in the industry. Equipment operators might not see a worker in their blind spot, or they may assume that their machine’s path of travel is clear.

Find out why waste collection companies are implementing collision mitigation systems.
