It was my understanding that the lay-off was a result of the economy that we
have all felt and that the individuals who were "canned" were let go because of
their failure to follow procedures. People not following procedures is probably
why they are looking at this penalty in the first place. Why wouldn't Clean
Harbors discipline individuals who put the environment at risk?Thank you,
Clean Harbors. It is a tough (and apparently unpopular) job, but someone has to
New businesses that moved into Tooele County several years ago hired away many
of the plant's employees, (cleanharbors) more like they canned them or layed
them off the company has spent nearly a million dollars to boost
salariesI have worked there for several years and I have not seen a raise
since I was hired on and the morale sucks cause they push to the point to where
someone could get hurt and then push some more I think if they was to pay there
guys a few more or stop hiring people at a higher pay scale and take care of
there old hands they might start a turn around and boost morale make people care
about there job and take some pride in there work
I have two questions: why is there so little media coverage on stories like
this? Why is there no "pro activism" by the company and regulators to prevent
this in the first place? The fine is not big enough make a difference to the
over all profits of Clean Harbors. The real victims are the workers,
environment, and public. When fines start to affect the bottom line companies
will improve their business practices.
We have a goal to clean up the environment. That is exactly what this company
is doing. Where would the Utah waste go if Aragonite was not there to manage
it? This is the most heavily regulated industry in America. Of course there
will be technical violations. Thanks, Clean Harbors, for doing the job you do.
I'm am really glad that they finally got fined. It's really sad when they only
get fined $5,000 when they almost kill an employee. But at least they are
getting what the should have gotten over three years ago. I'm sure that some of
these penalties are finally catching up to them.
Is there no one out there that is grateful someone wants to get rid of this kind
of waste instead of letting it pile up in the alley behind the company that
very negative working enviroment...
starting in Tooele...
That combination didnt help me much Phillip..May I suggest??
