Barclay intends to make 2014 a year to remember. For starters, most of the Barclay Team came out for a night of fun at Yutaka Japanese Steakhouse after this year’s Kick Off Sales Meeting. Many of the participating team members were recognized for outstanding performances for last year and earlier in the day aggressive goals were set for this year. Here is a collage of Team Barclay during the events. To view the complete photo gallery, click here.

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard has recently been revised to include new requirements which will be phased in over the next two and half years. Facilities and operations with any hazardous chemicals or materials must complete employee training by December 1, 2013.
This rule applies to all companies even if they only have one "Hazardous Chemical" on site such as: battery powered fork lift trucks battery acid Propane powered industrial units Food facilities who use chemicals for cleaning
The OSHA updates to the Hazard Communication Standard includes all operations and facilities which have at least one hazardous chemical on site.
The revisions are the result of OSHA’s alignment of the Hazard Communication Standard with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The training, to be provided by December 1, 2013, must include information on the Standard’s new labeling and safety data sheet (SDS) format requirements.

Although summer on the Jersey Shore is fast approaching, many people are still displaced and struggling from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. At Barclay we are continuing to help our fellow neighbors by donating to the Community Food Bank of NJ because they haven’t forgotten. And you can help too!
Spring has sprung and its time to clean house, or more like your equipment yard. Barclay will help recycle or properly dispose of old industrial forklifts or attachments.
