WAXIE Mesa, AZ

OSHA Hazard Communication Seminar
08/20/2014  |  10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: WAXIE Arizona
Contact: Kathy McKinzie (480) 333-1000 ext. 410
Description: Workplace safety, especially around hazardous chemicals & blood/body fluids, is a concern for everyone no matter what industry and it can get confusing when new standards are implemented.

Within the last couple of years, OSHA has updated their Hazard Communication Standard to incorporate the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) in an effort to improve workplace safety by creating a uniform chemical hazard classification system. The first phase (training all employees exposed to chemicals on the new GHS format) has been completed, but manufactures & distributors will soon begin to rollout phase two: the reclassification of chemicals, updated labeling & packaging and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) in the GHS format. Get a head start on familiarizing yourself with these changes and how to read the new SDS.

We’ll also be giving a general overview of OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and who is covered under it. Exposure control plans – preventative measures (tasks & procedures) used to eliminate or reduce exposure. Methods of control – universal precautions, engineering controls, work practices, personal protective equipment (PPE), gloves, housekeeping, regulated waste and laundry. Communication – conveying the information of hazards to employees. Recordkeeping – creating and maintaining.

Certificate for OSHA required GHS training will be provided. Seminar is 10:00am-12:00pm and is free to attend.

Description: This event is geared towards providing facility managers with new cleaning ideas and innovations to improve the efficiency of their buildings with a particular focus on energy savings & water conservation as a way of being more sustainable. 


CLEAN | GREEN | EFFICIENT

More than just buzzwords, green cleaning can promote wellness in a building through using products, tools & procedures that increase health & safety for the occupants. Efficient cleaning also can reduce the amount of chemicals used, improve indoor air quality, save you money, decrease energy & water usage, etc. Now more than ever, new cleaning technologies, as well as additional ideas on resource management make achieving these things much easier.

Two 45-minute presentations will be given – Cleaning Innovations with Steve Ashkin from the Ashkin Group; and Water Conservation with Chris Robbins from the City of San Diego. Tours of the SDG&E Energy Innovation Center’s Smart Home will be given after the two talks, as well as an opportunity to check-out various new products and equipment available from several attending vendors that can help you further your sustainability goals.
