WASHINGTON—The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries has released a new electronic publication, Creating a Fire Management and Measurement Plan.
The publication is designed as an aid to scrap recycling facilities in developing strategies for fire risk reduction, ISRI said.
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."
