NLBMDA tackles hazmat rules
With new OSHA hazard communication training requirements taking effect Dec. 1, the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) has planned a series of webinars to help educate dealers.
The new rules regarding global harmonization, pictograms, new MSDS requirements and new container labeling have many in the industry confused, according to the NLBMDA.
“The latest changes to the OSHA HazCom standard, which take effect later this year, can be baffling and overwhelming. LBM dealers have even more responsibility since they are both employers and resellers of covered materials,” reads an NLBMDA announcement for the webinars.
The hour-long webinars are set for Nov. 5, Nov. 7, Nov. 13 and Nov. 15.
Fees are $75 for NLBMDA members or state/regional LBM association members and $125 for non-members.
