NWRA Joins OSHA to Support Safe + Sound Campaign

Week-long Initiative is Designed to Increase Workplace Safety

Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) joined the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to celebrate the agency’s 2020 Safe + Sound campaign. Safe + Sound Week, which is being held the week of August 10, is an effort to encourage every workplace to have a safety and health program.

“NWRA is committed to workplace safety and wants every employee to come home safely at the end of his or her shift. That commitment is reflected in our partnership with OSHA,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith.

NWRA became a member of the OSHA Alliance last fall to support workplace safety. NWRA will promote OSHA’s Safe + Sound campaign through social media. Follow NWRA on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter for safety and health tips, and follow the campaign’s official hashtag #SafeAndSoundAtWork to learn more about Safe + Sound Week.



The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) represents the private sector waste and recycling services industry. Association members conduct business in all 50 states and include companies that manage waste, recycling and medical waste, equipment manufacturers and distributors, and a variety of other service providers.
