Sanitation: Creating a safety-focused culture

When you think of business, you don't think of employees being struck by a passing car, pinched between vehicles or crashed into at high-speeds at intersections.  Yet, these are real dangers trash haulers face every day, given that their workplace is on the nation's highways and byways.  In an industry that ranks among the top 10 most dangerous US businesses, Phoenix-based Allied Waster Industrires, Inc., its second largest player, set as its goal the dramatic reduction of employee accidents.  Working hard to do just that, the company managed in just two years to reduce its accident rate by 10% through an innovative communications and safety training program.
