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.
In summary, employees who believe they are wrongly accused of a safety infraction can appeal that determination before a board composed of employees from their worksite, selected at random. After reviewing evidence presented by both the employee and management in a formal hearing, the board must determine whether the evidence sufficiently proves that a violation of the work rule occurred. This determination is made by secret ballot, with the results final and binding.
The Peer Review program was initially created as part of a joint effort between management and employees at a single hauling site to address safety-related issues and perceived inconsistent disciplinary practices. The program has grown in popularity and use and is currently active in over 100 hauling sites. Installation at additional sites is ongoing.
