Only 1 Month Left to Complete OSHA Required Training!

Hazardjpg
There is just over 1 month left for businesses to comply with the OSHA 2012 rule requiring training of employees on the changes to the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) including the updates to product labeling and material safety data sheets. Most aviation businesses will have to meet this requirement. NATA Safety 1st provides an online training solution. More information on the Safety 1st OSHA HazCom training can be found at www.nata.aero/hazcom.

In 2012, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) revised their HCS. The HCS is now aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). This update to HCS will provide a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communication hazard information on labels and safety data sheets. Once implemented, the revised standard will improve the quality and consistency of hazard information in the workplace, making it safer for workers.

LSST in the News

As the manager of the Safety 1st programs, one of my daily activities is to review aviation news articles to keep track of what’s going on in the industry. I was ecstatic to see an article from October 10th about one of our NATA member companies attending the most recent Line Service Supervisor Training (LSST) in Indianapolis, IN.

Black Canyon Jet Center, located in Montrose, CO, sent two employees for training. They have also been participating with the Safety 1st training program since 2007 and they require all line service staff to be certified with Safety 1st. Kudos to Black Canyon Jet Center and all of our Safety 1st participants for making safety their first priority!

AIN Article on OSHA HazCom and NATA Safety 1st

In today’s edition of AIN Online, Curt Epstein previews the 2012 changes to the OSHA Hazard Communication (HazCom) standard and the impact they will have on aviation businesses. Under the OSHA HazCom standard, all employers must train any employee that handles, or that may be exposed to, a hazardous substance at work by December 1, 2013.

As noted in the article, NATA Safety 1st has developed a simple online training module that can be used to satisfy the December 2013 training requirement. More information on this training can be found at www.nata.aero/hazcom.
