SWANA has a strong commitment to safety and is determined to help move the waste collection industry off of the federal government’s list of 10 most dangerous jobs and reduce accidents and injuries across the board. The resources available on this page represent part of that effort and will be a resource to the entire Solid Waste industry here in Ohio. Keep up to date with tweets about safety in our industry using the #SWANAsafety hashtag.
