Brain Plautz explains why the trash room is considered the most dangerous room in a multi-family property. When employees push or pull heavy dumpsters manually from the trash room to curb side for hauler pick up, people get hurt and property gets damaged. And moving dumpsters over rough terrain, up inclines or across wet surfaces dramatically increases the risk of slips, falls and strains. Making changes to ensure employee safety in the trash room can result in fewer injuries, reduced workers comp claims, and lower insurance premiums.
