Questions & Answers:
In the case where a hazardous product is being imported into Canada from a foreign supplier and it is not intended only for use in the importer’s own workplace, it is the Canadian importer (that is, the Canadian party who is responsible for bringing the hazardous product into Canada) whose name, address, and telephone number must be provided on the label and SDS.
Audio Presentations:
The main objective of this audio presentation is to help your workers understand the impact of substance abuse in the workplace and to suggest ways that they can help the employer deal with this serious problem.
White Papers:
When you think of hazardous work, thoughts turn to manufacturing, agriculture, mining, and construction. Jokes about paper cuts notwithstanding, the typical school seems relatively free of risk compared to these environments, right? Maybe not. This Compliance Report examines hazards and solutions in educational workplaces.
Final Rules:
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has amended the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to allow the voluntary mounting of certain devices on the interior of the windshields of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs), including placement within the area that is swept by the windshield wipers.
Regulatory Analysis:
This topic covers safety and health issues surrounding temporary workers, defined as workers that are supplied to a host employer and paid by a staffing agency. OSHA considers host employers and staffing agencies to be jointly responsible for the safety and health of temporary workers. To that end, the two parties must work together to ensure that temporary workers are afforded the same level of protections as other workers.
Speaker's Notes:
With a rising number of multi-employer worksites in construction and other industries come increased safety risks for the organizations involved. In this on-demand webinar, presenter John J. Meola, CSP, ARM, of Pillar, Inc., will reveal effective ways to ensure that any and all contractors understand your safety culture and are working at the safety level that you expect of your employees.

Speaker's Notes:
Assistant Secretary of Labor Dr. David Michaels recently said that OSHA is changing its strategy regarding inspections for FY 2016, focusing less on the number of inspections it completes and instead placing more emphasis on completing complex inspections. Since the new inspection and enforcement changes are significant, now is the time to figure out exactly how the new approach will work—especially if you’re in an industry where the threat of inspection under OSHA’s new approach is high. In this on-demand webinar, seasoned safety lawyer Adele Abrams, Esq., CMSP, president of the Law Offices of Adele L. Abrams P.C., will explain the practical impact of OSHA’s new enforcement and inspection approach—and what to do to prepare in the event your worksite is inspected.

White Papers:
Of course you have a safety committee. But how effective is it? Does it satisfy a state requirement with minimal creativity or innovation? Is it your ticket to a discount on your workers’ comp coverage? Or does it actually enhance your safety performance, giving employees at all levels an opportunity to lead and engage in the safety process? What elements go into making a safety committee successful? This Compliance Report delivers reminders, tips, and best practices.
Questions & Answers:
BLR’s Spanish training resource center includes a collection of Spanish PowerPoints, Audio Presentations, Handouts, Quizzes, Activities, and Posters, as well as supporting English-language materials to help English speakers manage the safety of their Spanish-speaking workforce.
The pulmonary function test (PFT) is the most commonly misunderstood component of OSHA’s respirator use regulations. The respiratory protection standard does not require a PTF for all employees using a respirator. PFT is only required in the medical surveillance provisions of specific OSHA standards. So, the substances to which your workers are exposed will determine the need for PF testing.
