The Safety Council of the Ozarks, a regional branch of the National Safety Council (NSC), has awarded its 2012 Corporate Safety Award to six scrap metal recycling facilities owned by Kansas City, Mo.-based Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR).
According to the NSC, to win the award AMR’s safety practices and accident rates had to stand out from the rest of the scrap metal recycling industry. The six facilities receiving the award are in Emporia and Kansas City, Kan.; and in Clarence, Columbia, Linn Creek and Sedalia, Mo.
“This recognition from the Safety Council is greatly appreciated," says Raynard Brown, AMR president. “Our employees know that safety and environmental stewardship is the foundation of our company’s culture. We all feel that having the safest recycling facilities possible has countless benefits for our employees and our customers.”
AMR is wholly owned by Cincinnati-based The David J. Joseph Co. (DJJ), one of the largest scrap brokers/processors in the United States.
