A broken strap is believed to have a caused a Stericycle clinical (medical) waste spill on a road in Pennsylvania on Thursday. It happened around 1pm Thursday afternoon. What a mess!
Apparently, a strap that was holding the containers in place broke inside the trailer, causing a container to slam into the truck door and break it open. It took cleanup crews around two hours to clear the scene.
I am not surprised that this took two hours to clear, but I wonder just how clear it was on completion?
Stericycle: Protecting People, Reducing Risk
It’s easy to joke, but each day vast quantities of waste are moved by road. Make sure your drivers are not going to cause a similar incident.
