PHMSA shared advice from the CDC regarding shipping Monkeypox samples/waste. Which hazard class/division would those samples belong to?

Employees may select a representative to aid in an OSHA inspection, if deemed reasonably necessary by the inspector. When might this be the case, per OSHA?






Not quite.

A recent OSHA rule clarified that "the representative(s) authorized by employees may be an employee of the employer or a third party," but that the Compliance Safety and Health Officer must agree that a representative is reasonably necessary to aid in the inspection.

OSHA added context to the regulation about when a third party may be reasonably necessary. Reasons include relevant knowledge or skills, language or communication skills, or experience with hazards or conditions in the workplace or similar workplaces.

The higher the energy density of a lithium-ion battery, the greater the potential hazard in transportation. In what unit is this energy density measured?






Not quite.

For lithium-ion batteries, energy density is measured in Watt-hour rating or Wh rating. Shippers of lithium-ion batteries use the Watt-hour rating to determine how the battery must be packaged, marked, and labeled, as well as what kind of quantity limitations apply to the shipment or whether the batteries are forbidden from certain modes of transport—namely passenger aircraft.
