 June 1, 2016 is the Final Implementation Deadline for Employer Compliance with HazComm 2012   

By June 1, 2016, employers are required to update any alternative workplace labeling of containers with covered hazardous chemicals, update their hazard communication program as necessary (which includes making all required Safety Data Sheets accessible to all workers), and provide additional employee training for newly identified physical or health hazards. These are also considered on-going compliance obligations.
If an employer uses alternative workplace labeling, the labeling must comply with the new HazComm 2012 requirements. Furthermore, if an employer identifies new hazards based on the information found on the new labels and SDSs, the employer must update its hazard communications plan by the June 1, 2016 deadline.

Understanding How The Regulations
Apply To Your Operation
The use of any Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) in your operations subject you to a wide host of Federal and State regulations dealing with hiring, hours of service, driver qualification, vehicle maintenance, insurance, drug and alcohol testing to name a few.

This webinar will provide an overview of the following areas:
  • Driver hiring requirements
  • Drug and alcohol testing
  • Hours of service rules
  • Vehicle maintenance rules
  • Discussion of recent regulatory changes with regard to electronic Logging Devices and Driver Coercion
  • Discussion on recent proposals on Driver licensing and Sleep apnea
Don't miss out on this webinar Wednesday, May 11, 2016.

New Coalition Dedicated to Free Lumber Trade

With the expiration of the U.S. - Canada Softwood Lumber Agreement last fall, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is forming a coalition that is committed to providing American consumers access to a stable, dependable and affordable supply of lumber and building materials.

The American Alliance of Lumber Consumers (AALC) supports free trade in lumber and building materials. The current share of Canadian imported lumber in the U.S. market is 28% (three-year average), and any new trade agreement has the great potential to disrupt the stability of the market and reduce the current share of imports. Currently, the U.S. and Canada are engaged in a "cooling off" period until Oct. 12, 2016, during which no trade disputes can be filed by either country regarding softwood lumber imports.
