OSHA To Delay Beryllium PEL Compliance Deadline
Finalized in January 2017, the Final Rule dropped the long-term PEL for beryllium to an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) of 0.2 micrograms per cupid meter of air and dropped the short-term PEL for beryllium to 2 micrograms per cubic meter of air over 15 minutes.
The delay is in response to an executive order issued on January 20, which required all Federal agencies to postpone for at least 60 days the effective date of any new final regulations not yet in effect. The required 60-day “freeze” period would have made March 21, 2017 the effective date for the beryllium rule. However, OSHA determined that is was appropriate in this case to delay the effective date for 60 additional days “for the purpose of reviewing questions of fact, law, and policy raised therein.”

I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
You blew the doors off the competition!
Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.
Supply Chain Director
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.
Corporate Product Stewardship Specialist
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
Well designed and thorough program. Excellent summary of requirements with references. Inclusion of regulations in hard copy form, as well as full electronic with state pertinent regulations included is a great bonus!
