Employee exposure to unguarded or inadequately guarded machines is prevalent in many workplaces. Consequently, workers who operate and maintain machinery suffer approximately 18,000 amputations, lacerations, crushing injuries, abrasions, and over 800 deaths per year. Amputation is one of the most severe and crippling types of injuries in the occupational workplace, and often results in permanent disability. It’s up to the employer to recognize the machine hazard and implement safeguarding equipment and procedures to prevent injuries. Join us as we discuss the many aspects of machine guarding compliance.
Join us for a discussion on the backbone of EHS compliance: Reporting, Recordkeeping, and planning ahead. Chris Maye and Erin Rymsa will share the regulatory requirements as well as best practices for planning out your compliance calendar, preparing for your annual reports and recordkeeping dos and don’ts. Join us for this complementary webinar!
Tier II Reporting
The EPA’s Hazardous Chemical Inventory Reporting program, also known as Tier II reporting, is one of the most common environmental reporting requirements for almost every industrial operation. CMI has been assisting companies to complete Tier II reports for many years. In order to promote a more thorough understanding of the program, CMI is pleased to invite you to our TIER II webinar. CMI will also cover other reports to prepare for in 2024.
Ergonomics: Good for Employees, Good for Business
Every year work-related musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., sprains and strains) make up about 30-35% of workplace injuries and about 35-40% of direct injury costs. Ergonomics has been proven to be a cost-effective way to prevent these injuries and business losses. And yet, many companies are hesitant to embrace ergonomics because it is often not fully understood and at times politicized. But times are changing. More and more companies are engaging ergonomic programs to gain a competitive advantage by not only reducing injuries and related costs but also by boosting productivity.
Lockout/Tagout - One of OSHA's Most Cited Regulations
The Control of Hazardous Energy under 29 CFR 1910.147 continues to be in the top 10 most cited regulations by OSHA nationwide. When it comes to controlling hazardous energy through lockout tagout there are many variables to contend with, that lead to non-compliance, injuries and in some cases fatalities. This includes when lockout tagout is necessary, procedure review, training and implementation.
How Facility Operations Can Affect Phase 1
A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is a comprehensive report prepared for a real estate holding that identifies potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities. Many commercial and industrial operations are required by financial lenders to complete a Phase I ESA as part of the sale or refinance of the property. An often-overlooked tool that many business owners possess is the ability to complete a Phase I ESA up to a year before the sale of the property, which can save a lot of time and headache down the road!
Stormwater Compliance for the Construction Industry
Stormwater pollution is one of the major issues facing our nation today. The EPA and many state agencies have increased their regulation of stormwater over the past 10 years and have plans to continue these efforts. Facilities and real estate development sites are affected when they begin construction activities. Various aspects of the stormwater regulations may apply to these activities; including permitting, planning, and pre and post construction inspections.
Are you Ready for the Heat? A Discussion on Heat Stress Prevention and the OSHA National Emphasis Program
OSHA launched a targeted program to protect workers across the nation from the increasing threat of heat-related illness. The National Emphasis Program (NEP) creates a nationwide enforcement mechanism for OSHA to proactively inspect workplaces for heat-related hazards in workplaces that have hazardous exposures to heat (outdoors and/or indoors). This webinar will provide information on the NEP and how businesses can comply.
Confined Space Compliance: What You Need to Know
Confined spaces can be one of the most dangerous situations employees can encounter in the workplace. Over 100 employees lose their lives annually and many others suffer serious injuries. Confined Spaces regulations for General Industry are under 29 CFR 1910.146 and include the practice of ensuring safe work conditions in fully or partially enclosed areas such as manholes, chemical tanks, pipelines, boilers, utility vaults, and storage bins. This webinar will focus on confined space requirements, roles/responsibilities, and pitfalls to programs and how to mitigate them.
