In previous years, NSWMA has used this $ to: Hold ergonomics training seminars On-line ergonomics/safety training Develop ergonomics checklists Be Safe, Be Proud:  Be Safe, Be Proud In 2004, NSWMA partnered with Republic Services to develop a safety video focused on residential collection – drivers and helpers: Be Safe, Be Proud.

Because solid waste/recyclable collectors have the 6th highest fatality rate in the United States: 43.8 per 100,000 in 2005 (43) This is about ten times the national average. The solid waste industry’s injury/illness rate is trending down, but is still high: 8.3 per 100 – collection 7.0 per 100 – disposal Why?:  Why? The money spent on personal injury, property damages, workers compensation and lawyers is HUGE.
