Need HazComm Training?

Now available to PIA Members, at no cost, through regularly scheduled webinars

Hazard Communication Standard training is required for all employees exposed to hazardous chemicals. Sometimes this presents a problem when we have a new hire, make a sudden change in chemicals used, or are just too busy to shut down a department or shift to conduct the training.

Now you don’t have to! Your employees who need to be trained can join us for one of our regularly scheduled Hazard Communication Standard webinars.

Webinars will be held at 6:00 am, 10:00 am and 4:00 pm on the following dates:

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Thursday, October 6, 2016

Tuesday, October 10, 2016

Thursday, October 20, 2016

Whether you have one employee, a large group, or even employees spread over multiple shifts, this is for you. All you need is a computer, Internet connection and phone service. 

OSHA penalties are increasing with a “serious” violation going from $7,000 to $12,471 and “willful” rising from $70,000 to $124,709. These fines are scheduled to increase annually with adjustments tied to the CPI.

All participants will receive information and forms to be utilized to document your training efforts and assistance in developing the “company-specific” portion of the training.

The awards will be presented at the annual Franklin Luminaire Awards gala at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, New York, NY, on October 19th, 5:30 pm-10 pm. As announced previously, also to be honored at the event are Chris Dunn of American Express, Jerry Faust of Time, Inc., and Steve Zenger of the Zenger Group, who will receive 2016 Luminaire Awards, and noted journalist and author Armen Keteyian, who has been named recipient of the 2016 Franklin Award for Distinguished Service.

“We are pleased to inaugurate our new Innovation Excellence Award with such worthy recipients as Dianne, Paul, and Canon Solutions America,” says Steve Drew, Co-Chair of the 2016 Franklin Luminaire Awards Committee. “The Innovation Excellence Award was established to recognize a company or individual in graphic and visual communications who is pioneering, pacesetting, and advancing new technologies—innovators who are moving our industry into the future, and that is certainly true of our first three recipients.

“The Zenger Medal, named after Colonial-era printer and freedom of the press trailblazer John Peter Zenger, honors a graphic communications professional who has demonstrated exceptional community service, making our community a better place to live or serving our country in ways that make us proud,” says Meghan Milkowski, 2016 Franklin Luminaire Awards Co-Chair. “Mark’s decades of service to the industry and his extraordinary volunteer work on behalf of numerous charitable causes, both within and outside the industry, exemplify the ideals of the Zenger Medal.”
