If you’ve recently hired a new employee who will be working with hazardous materials, or a current employee has agreed to work with additional hazardous materials, they’ll need to complete HAZCOM training. HAZCOM stands for hazardous communications, and training for it is required by OSHA. Barclay Brand Ferdon provides HAZCOM training for businesses in New Jersey and New York. Here, we take a closer look at what you need to know about HAZCOM training.
No matter how long you’ve worked in warehousing or distribution, you know the importance of safety guidelines for everyone when you work with or around industrial equipment. This year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) updated their requirements for employers incorporate fall protection training to help further prevent and reduce accidents.
With these changes, as of January 17, 2017, Fall Protection Training is required for any employee using a walking or working surface at or above 4 feet. According to the new regulations, the systems that are put in place for fall protection are required to either prevent the worker from falling entirely or, in instances where this is not possible, catch them from suffering internal injuries or contacting a lower level.
Did you know that according to the National Safety Council 70% of all forklift accidents are a result of operator error? Or that OSHA states that businesses spend over $170 billion (with a B), annually on occupational injuries and illness. If your company is tired of operators not following safety procedures and taking a bite out of profits, then let Barclay show you how to reduce costs and increase performance.
National Forklift Safety Day is here and Barclay is excited to celebrate and encourage safe forklift operator practices.
Sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association, the 2nd Annual National Forklift Day is being held in Washington, D.C. where leaders in the forklift industry will come together to highlight the importance of operator training to prevent forklift accidents and injuries.
It is very important that only the operator rides in the seat of the forklift. There should be no other passengers on the forks or anywhere else. Also keep hands and feet inside the forklift at all times, as a lowered mast could sever hands, OUCH!
With the goal of reducing the hazards associated with forklifts, the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) is in Washington, D.C. today sponsoring the inaugural National Forklift Safety Day.
This event marks the convergence of manufacturers, customers, policymakers and the Administration to provide the unique opportunity for all parties to become educated and informed on industry practices meant to ensure the safest work environments possible.
The release of OSHA’s Top 10 Safety Violations of 2013 comes as a reminder that your employees are your most valuable assets in the material handling industry.
When it comes to the safety of your employees, trust Barclay with the task at hand. We offer a variety of customized material handling safety training courses and consultations to better understand the specific safety needs of our customers.
