  • Right-to-Know/Hazard Communication Training
    Required by OSHA (see 29 CFR 1910.1200), this must be provided to all production employees. Attendees will learn how to develop an effective Right-to-Know program and avoid the most commonly cited standard among printers. This course covers the basics of the Employee Right-to-Know standard, Safety Data Sheets (SDS), proper chemical container labeling and much more.
  • Complying With the Minnesota Workplace Accident and Injury Reduction (AWAIR) Act: A Practical Approach
    All Minnesota printers need to comply with Minnesota OSHA’s AWAIR Act. This workshop takes a practical approach to help meet both the letter and spirit of this law without hours and hours of your time. The workshop covers the five basic elements of AWAIR and how to effectively comply without totally reinventing the wheel.
