EPA's TSCA regulations at 40 CFR 749 apply to any person using hexavalent chromium-based water treatment chemicals as well as any person who distributes hexavalent chromium-based water treatment chemicals for use in such systems.
As of August 1, a new OSHA Injury Tracking Application is available to help employers meet their obligations for electronic reporting of injury and illness data. Employers covered under this new requirement have until December 1, 2017 to submit data from OSHA Forms 300 and/or 300A.
US EPA has announced the availability of documents that lay out the scope of the risk evaluations EPA will perform on the first 10 chemicals identified for evaluation under TSCA, as revised by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (“The Lautenberg Law”).
As hinted at last month on OSHA’s website, the Agency this week proposed extending the deadline for employers to electronically submit injury and illness data recorded on OSHA Form 300A for the year 2016. The new proposed deadline for employers to submit 2016 Form 300A data using the new electronic system is December 1, 2017.
Under the new Final Rule, EPA will require chemical manufacturers and importers to submit a “retrospective electronic notification” for all chemicals manufactured or imported over a ten-year period—from June 21, 2006 to June 21, 2016.
From OSHA's website: “OSHA is not accepting electronic submissions of injury and illness logs at this time, and intends to propose extending the July 1, 2017 date by which certain employers are required to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A electronically.”
In the Federal Register on Friday, May 12, US EPA announced it will delay the effective date of its new TSCA reporting and recordkeeping requirements for nanoscale materials until August 14, 2017.
This month, the US Senate passed a joint resolution to disapprove of OSHA’s Final Rule to make accurate recordkeeping of workplace injury and illness an “ongoing obligation.”
If you love facts and figures, EPA’s Biennial Report summary is a terrific resource, allowing you to sort the data in a number of different ways to suit your needs or your curiosity. EPA now makes available tables of RCRA Biennial Report data collected from 2001 through the present.
While a compliance “binder” may seem like an out of date term, it is still a useful concept. When an inspector visits your site, there are certain key paperwork items he or she will want to see. When you keep all these crucial EHS documents together, it can reduce your stress during the inspection and make for an easier, faster process overall.
