WASHINGTON — The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has published guidelines that are designed to help scrap-recycling facilities develop strategies for fire risk reduction.
The information, "Creating a Fire Management and Measurement Plan," is available in digital form on the ISRI website. It was developed by fire science, insurance and scrap tire industry professionals as a guidance document to help business owners, operators and environmental health and safety professionals mitigate potential fire risks, it said.
ISRI said it will review and update the document at least once every year.
"While the document does provide a detailed and scalable overview of developing a plan, each site is different," it said. "Plans should be prepared according to the size and type of the facility, and depending on the size, not all suggestions may be appropriate."
