E-Manifest
The EPA's E-Manifest system for hazardous waste shipments has gone live. In the past, paper copies were used to track shipments. The Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act, passed in 2012, now establishes an electronic manifest system. It is anticipated that after a 5-year phase-in period, all hazardous waste shipments will be completed with electronic manifests. Please visit our blog for more information.
OSHA Ready! – September 13
OSHA compliance is a struggle for companies, both large and small. In most printing operations, the compliance duties are divided up among several employees instead of one key individual. In turn, compliance can suffer, which can cost your organization dearly when the inspector comes knocking. Regardless of the printing process, reducing or eliminating citation costs is vital. OSHA Ready! provides the roadmap to understanding OSHA, its regulations, and the essential systems you need to have in place to be compliant. Prepare for the unexpected, become knowledgeable about what applies to your operation, learn what is required—and get OSHA Ready
