  • G1770517  ( 05/05/2017 )

    OSHA’s revised Hazard Communication Standard is now in effect, and OSHA expects full compliance. The revisions were made to align the requirements with those in the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).

    This webinar will cover the basic requirements of the Hazard Communication Standard and demonstrate how to develop a written program. Each attendee will receive a template that they can customize for their facility.

    The Hazard Communication Standard is the most often cited regulation for the printing industry. Don’t let OSHA catch you unprepared; sign up now!


  • G1770617  ( 06/09/2017 )

    The Lockout/Tagout standard known as “Control of Hazardous Energy” is one of the most important OSHA regulations designed to protect employees from serious injury.  The regulation is vital, as it pertains to both safe equipment operation and the control of hazardous energy during maintenance activities. Compliance with the regulation is mandatory and it will prevent injuries such as amputations and fatalities due to the inadvertent energization of equipment.


    Since the Lockout/Tagout regulation is very extensive, this overview of the compliance requirements will be presented over two webinars. Part one will cover core requirements and key definitions within the standard, such as minor servicing and maintenance, alternative protection requirements, and exemptions. We will also walk through a Lockout/Tagout program template provided by Printing Industries of America, explaining required information and general procedures.


    Part two will cover, in detail, the required elements of a machine-specific procedure and how to utilize PIA’s written program template. We will also discuss exceptions for cord and plug equipment, how to approach a group lockout situation, as well as the differences between employee training and periodic inspections.

  • G1770717  ( 07/14/2017 )

    Personal protective equipment (PPE) standards exist in order to protect employees from exposure to potential physical and chemical hazards at their place of employment. Employers are required to determine, through a formal assessment, what hazards are present in the workplace and what PPE is needed to protect those exposed employees.


    During this webinar, we will review OSHA’s requirements and analyze common job duties throughout the printing industry and the hazards they present. Utilizing PIA’s hazard assessment PPE template, we will demonstrate how to conduct a formal assessment to identify the appropriate PPE for each employee activity.
