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.”

Lion's information is very thorough and accurate. Presenter was very good.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
The instructor was energetic and made learning fun compared to dry instructors from other training providers.
