The new Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) from OSHA requires chemical manufacturers, distributors or importers (including ready mixed concrete producers) to make adjustments to their Hazard Communication Plan... is your company ready? The new rule that went into effect in 2012 requires ready mixed concrete producers to change their Material Safety Data Sheets or MSDSs to a new 16-part format Safety Data Sheet (SDS) ... have you done so? There is a new criteria for labels on hazardous chemicals, including pictograms... do you know what they are? The labels must now include Chemical Hazard Classifications, Precautionary Statements and Signal Words... are your employees familiar with these? The new standard requires that your employees be trained about the various aspects of your new Hazardous Communication Plan by later this year... have they been trained? Do you know where to find ready mixed concrete industry specific training?

NRMCA has scheduled a Webinar on Tuesday, August 27, to help explain these issues. Leading the discussion will be NRMCA's Gary Mullings and Kevin Walgenbach and NRMCA members from Producer companies Tim Kauzlick of CEMEX and David Bosarge with MMC Materials.
