For Valley Pallet, the teardown process is a vital function of our operations. With the demand put on the use of recycled material, the safety and efficiency of teardown is at the center of our daily focus. In regards to any practices, training, modifications of our bandsaw dismantlers, we have not had any third party or outside source require or encourage anything different than what we’re currently doing.
Our team operates the teardown process and equipment based on OSHA standards and industry best practices. Our training on this equipment is extensive, making sure any new operator is properly versed on all aspects of the machine. We have made guard modifications to other types of saws, but we have not had to do anything special with the bandsaws. We are always looking for more efficient, safer alternatives to the bandsaw but as of now, we are confident with what we have.
