Content Creation Guidelines


Heavy Equipment

The following rules regarding heavy equipment operation, safety accessories, and maintenance have been established for the protection of all individuals.


Heavy Equipment 1

Only persons trained, qualified and/or certified (as required) shall operate heavy equipment on Waste Management property.


Heavy Equipment 2

Seatbelts must be worn when operating heavy equipment.


Heavy Equipment 3

Safe operating rules including but not limited to restrictions on speed, not exceeding load limits and prohibition of riders must be followed.


Heavy Equipment 4

A back-up alarm, fire extinguisher and a functioning strobe light are required safety accessories on all heavy equipment.


Heavy Equipment 5

Contractor owned heavy equipment shall be included in a preventative maintenance program according to the manufactures instructions.


Heavy Equipment 6

Trenching/Excavation

Welcome to Trenching and Excavation.

The construction, servicing and/or maintenance of leachate collection systems, gas collection systems and drainage swales, to name a few, often involves working in or around trenches and/or excavations.


Trenching/Excavation 1

Those not involved in the trenching or excavation operation must refrain from entering and maintain a safe distance from all trenches and excavations.


Trenching/Excavation 1

I understand and agree that those not involved in the trenching or excavation operation must refrain from entering and maintain a safe distance from all trenches and excavations.


Trenching/Excavation 2

Hazards commonly associated with trenching and excavation operations typically include but are not limited to:

  • Falls

  • Cave-ins

  • Hazardous atmospheres (including oxygen deficient atmospheres)


Trenching/Excavation 2

Remember, landfill gas is heavier than air and will therefore migrate into low-lying areas such as trenches and excavations and will displace oxygen.

When oxygen is displaced in this way, breathing becomes difficult or impossible.


Trenching/Excavation 3

Only trained and qualified persons under the direction of a certified competent person are authorized to perform trenching/excavation activities at this Waste Management landfill facility.
