NWRA Safety Monday Highlights Effects of Daylight Saving Time

Arlington, VA – This week’s Safety Monday, presented by Waste Management, highlights the side effects of the time change.

“Whether we are springing forward or falling back at the beginning and end of daylight saving time, it impacts our health and body clock,” said Kirk Sander, chief of staff and vice president of safety and standards for the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA). “We can prepare for the time change by going to bed earlier and exercising to improve our health and sleep.”

“We are pleased to provide this industry-renowned safety resource to anyone who requests it,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “You do not need to be a member of NWRA to receive it.”
