Wake Forest, NC (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
In 2012 the Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration updated its Hazard Communication Standard for all general industries. This update will be required in all workplaces. This update included the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, known as GHS, which is applicable for all U.S. industry workers and work places. This new system will allow for international consistency within one system.
One main implication of this new system is GHS training. OSHA will require that all employees be trained in the new label elements by the end of this year. These new labels also have new Material Safety Data Sheets which have now been changed to Safety Data Sheets in the new GHS system. By having MSDS updated to SDS will inform OSHA inspectors that all employees have been trained in GHS. Furthermore, these SDS sheets must be visible at all times, updated, and available for all employees.
One of the best ways to mark the location of SDS information is by using Stop-Painting.com’s custom printed Superior Mark floor marking kit for SDS areas. The SDS kits come with Superior Mark floor tape which is quick and easy to install with their featured puzzle cut corners and create a perimeter around the SDS area. This makes installation faster, as there is no need to cut or butt splice tape to create the box shaped marking. It installs in just a few minutes with a quick peel and stick application. This perimeter ensures that employees will never block the SDS area and will always know where the SDS folders are, making compliance with OSHA regulations stress-free.
Adding a SDS rubber floor sign will add even more visibility to the SDS area. The rubber signs have a smooth urethane top coat that is self cleaning. They are self adhesive and go down quick and stay down with a strong adhesive. Unlike vinyl, rubber signs will last much longer and are much more visible. Rubber signs can be added for a small extra charge.
In addition to helping comply with OSHA regulation, Stop-Painting.com is starting the price of these floor marking kits at 25% off. This price will help ease the cost for employers as they update their facilities.
"These SDS floor marking kits will show OSHA inspectors that employees have been trained in the new GHS system and take it seriously," says Cliff Lowe, the Managing Director at InSite Solutions.
