    Welcome to NC SWANA

    NC SWANA Training Status

    The North Carolina Chapter of SWANA is actively monitoring the coronavirus situation.  With the training and other events offered by the Chapter being largely local in nature and not condsidered large gatherings, the Chapter has decided it will not cancel any scheduled training or events at this time.  All NC SWANA training classes including MOLO in Wilmington in June will be held as scheduled.

    If you or your employer decides to cancel a registration, please contact Beverly Hester by email, [email protected]  Telephone cancellations will not be accepted.

    SWANApalooza has been postponed.  Guidance on Coronavirus

    As you are aware, many workplaces and communities are preparing for, or already dealing with, impacts related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Though knowledge about this disease is evolving, the attached guidance document has been prepared for use by employers and employees in the solid waste industry based on current recommendations. At this time, no special precautions for municipal solid waste workers are prescribed by OSHA. Workers should continue to use those precautions already in place to protect them from hazards they encounter during their routine job tasks. Now is a great time to review those precautions and remind workers the importance of following them.

    As more is learned about the coronavirus, these recommendations may change. In addition to checking with SWANA, please coordinate with your state, provincial/territorial, and local health and occupational safety agencies. For more updated information about the virus, please visit the CDCOSHAor WHO.
