Recently, we were contacted by a car dealership from Fremont, CA. The customer wanted a large amount of junk removed from their site that needed to be OSHA compliant. Items that were to be removed included large pallets, engine parts, rubber tires, engine oil, and car parts that were heavy and sometimes sharp. We make sure we handle these materials with care and use all the safety precautions we’ve been trained in. As a professional junk hauling company we are trained and equipped to ensure OSHA compliance.
Why Hire a Professional Junk Hauler for OSHA Compliance?
Under the OSHA compliance requirements, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace. Because of this, employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards.
Depending on the quantity and nature of your waste, the simple work of moving it can be hazardous. Cuts, abrasions and back strains are very real consequences of clearing and hauling junk. In addition, you may be working with actual hazardous materials that need to be handled properly and legally. Without proper training and proper equipment, disposing of some waste can lead to complications. At West Coast Junk, our staff is fully insured and well trained, so you can trust us to get rid of your unwanted items in a professional and courteous fashion to help you conform to OSHA compliance. We also recycle and donate as much of the material we pick-up, which makes it a win-win for everyone.
Cost Savings of using a Professional Junk Hauling Company to meet OSHA Compliance
One of the questions we have heard is, “Why can’t we just have our own staff remove the junk?” The thing is, using your own employees for junk hauling invites potential issues with injuries and overtime costs. When you factor in the time and wages spent on employees (or yourself), cleaning and hauling your junk it can become very expensive. You lose the time they (or you) could be working on your business. You run the risk of unnecessary injury when working with individuals who are not trained professionally in the proper removal of debris. At West Coast Junk we have trained professionals who will remove your trash using our equipment. We have trucks that can haul large and small projects and we make sure every job we finish is cleaned up properly.
