J. J. Keller’s latest publication – Hazmat Handbook: The Complete Guide for CMV Drivers — is now available. Created exclusively for hazmat drivers, it provides answers to key safety and compliance questions.
As well, in order to eliminate confusion and make it easier for those dealing with chemicals to stay informed and compliant with the recently updated U.S. standards, the company also created the HazCom Label Manager at managehazcom.com.
Written by hazmat experts to serve as a take-along resource, the handbook covers essential information that ensures the safe transportation of hazardous materials. It provides best practices, practical how-to information and plain-English explanations of complex and confusing hazmat regulations. It contains a complete overview of driver responsibilities and serves as both a training guide and a reference for every step from pick-up to post-delivery. The book includes FAQs in every chapter covering commonly asked questions.
The new Label Manager is a response to OSHA’s alignment of the HazCom Standard with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). It means big changes for hazard classification, labels and Safety Data Sheets, says Keller.
This new online tool offers: a free information center providing plain-English explanations of the latest HazCom news on regulatory changes; label wizards guiding users through the creation of compliant GHS, NFPA and HMIS III labels. Users can purchase blank label stock from J. J. Keller to print labels on their office computers, or submit labels online for Keller to print and ship to them.
