Newly added courses include 40 Hour HAZWOPER, 24 Hour HAZWOPER, and 8 Hour HAZWOPER training.
Tracking of Workplace Injuries and IllnessesOSHA is moving ahead with a proposal to remove provisions that require employers with 250 or more employees to electronically submit injury and illness data from OSHA Form 300 (Log of Work-Related Injury and Illnesses) and Form 301 (injury and Illness Incident Report).
Under the proposal, employers would be required to submit only data from the OSHA Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses). This rule was proposed in July 2018 and a Final Rule is expected in June 2019. (RIN 1218-AD17)
Before the end of 2018, OSHA plans complete a rulemaking that’s been in the works since 2012. The forthcoming Final Rule will “remove or revise duplicative, unnecessary, and inconsistent safety and health standards in OSHA’s recordkeeping, general industry, maritime, and construction standards.” In addition, OSHA will remove the requirement for employees' social security numbers to be included on certain medical forms. (RIN 1218-AC67)
Standards Improvement Project IV
OSHA will evaluate three new quantitative fit test protocols for respirators. If the new fit test protocols are deemed appropriate, OSHA will adopt them into Appendix A of the Respiratory Protection Standard at 29 CFR 1910.134. The agency plans to have a Final Rule ready in December 2018. (RIN 1218-AC94)

GHS HazCom UpdateOSHA will update its hazard communication or HazCom Standard at 29 CFR 1910.1200 to reflect the latest revisions to the Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). In 2012, OSHA adopted the 3rd edition of GHS. Today, the world is on the 7th edition of GHS. (RIN 1218-AC93)
Other rules in early stages of their regulatory life include possible revisions to the general industry standards for beryllium exposure (RIN 1218-AD20), the approval of Puerto Rico’s State OSHA Plan (RIN 1218-AD13), and updates to the emergency response and preparedness standards—including performance specifications for PPE (RIN 1218-AC91).

The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.
Mary Sue Michon
The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.
Corporate Product Stewardship Specialist
Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.
Senior EHS Engineer
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!
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
