When was the last time you audited your HazCom program? The HazCom standard is one of the most cited violations of OSHA regulations. Most of these citations are for lack of written program or failure to follow the written program.
This talk will cover the basics of a HazCom program audit. For producers of chemicals and end users of chemicals, we will cover issues such as development of a written program, SDS production and distribution, labeling (in-house and shipped) and various exemptions that may apply. We will give you guidance on how to conduct your audit to catch and correct some of the most common deficiencies.
Bill Wahoff and Nelva Smith of Steptoe-Johnson,
On January 1, 2015, OSHA’s revisions to the Reporting Rule became effective. Employers now must report within 24 hours single in-patient hospitalizations (previously three persons had to be reported), any amputation injury (even if no bone in a finger is affected) and eye injuries, as well as the previous fatality rule within eight hours. This session will review how those reports have triggered inspections in which companies have received proposed penalties ranging from ten-thousand to a million dollars and more and how the items in Section 147 (LOTO) and 212 and following (Machine Guarding) are causing greatly increased proposed penalties. Measures to prevent those violations and others will be covered in this session.
