Safety Checklist: Read, Check, and Sign
Minimum Safety Requirements - Always use your judgement - if you don’t feel safe, trust yourself.
Cars and Bikes, are usually our biggest hazard - stay alert, especially on bike paths
Stay off highway pavement at all times. Stay off on-ramp and off-ramp pavement
Stay at least 6 feet from highway lane-of-traffic
When untrashing along roads or bikeways, always face traffic.
Never enter an area where you can’t get to safety, quickly. Use a spotter in situations where cars or bikes might come up suddenly.
Sprains and Falls are usually our second biggest hazard - know your limits, and stick to terrain you’re comfortable with.
Don’t put needles in trash; Respect needles when handling. Focus and watch your hands. Don’t carry needles around, they should go straight from the ground into a sharps container, pointy side down.
Not a safety thing, but… don’t drag collapsible containers, they rip
