Peer Review Program

Our Peer Review program is an innovative, industry-first initiative designed to create a greater sense of job security and awareness by interjecting employees directly into the administration of our safety disciplinary policies and culture. It began as a joint effort between management and employees at a single hauling site to address safety-related issues and perceived inconsistent disciplinary practices.

In summary, employees who believe they are wrongly accused of a safety infraction can appeal that determination before a group of employees randomly selected from their worksite. After reviewing evidence presented by both the employee and management in an informal hearing, this group independently determines whether the evidence is sufficient to sustain management’s decision that the employee violated the work rule as alleged. This determination is made by secret ballot, with the results final and binding.

The Peer Review program has grown in popularity and use and is currently active in over 100 operating locations. Implementation at additional sites is ongoing.
