Accidents in everyday life happen all to easily, whether with a distracted driver, lifting items incorrectly or unsafe habits around the home. The waste industry is no different and is considered one of the most dangerous career paths an individual may choose. We are deciding to make a difference and protect our employees and communities with a culture promoting safety above all else. LRS actively takes strides in creating a safety culture that focuses not only on following safety practices at work but incorporating safety into our employees’ and communities’ daily lives.

As a leading recycling and waste diversion services provider in the country, LRS is committed to setting industry standards, especially regarding safety. Not only does practicing safety improve the quality and efficiency of work but it also ensures that everyone returns home to their loved ones. Safety is more than a priority to LRS; it is a value that is at the forefront of everything we do.

In 2017, we created the Live Safety philosophy to not only educate others on the importance of safety but also encourage a lifestyle change for everyone who encounters the message. LRS’ objective is to create a kind of personal culture which instills a lifestyle that chooses safety rather than being told to be safe. Safety has a profound influence on all lives; no matter the profession or location.

Live Safety is more than just a safety program or campaign, but a lifestyle change. Improving your own personal safety culture incites others to do the same. Safety is a value that should matter to everyone, at all times. The mission of the principle is to educate others on why safety is essential, as well as motivate them to be mindful of their daily habits. This ensure that safety is not just a priority but a core value.

Once every person keeps safety at the top of their mind on a regular basis, without being told to do so, the world will be a better and safer place. And this is why LRS believes in the importance to Live Safety.
