DPI Right To Know Program, Helps Members Comply with OSHA Standards
Press release from the issuing company
FAIRFAX, VA– If a digital printing company is operating in the United States and does not have a Right-to-Know or Hazard Communication Training Program in effect, that company may be on the verge of a grave mistake, according to officials with the Digital Printing & Imaging Association (DPI).
"Violations of the Hazard Communication Standard are the single most-commonly-cited infraction of OSHA regulations," says Dan Marx, DPI’s Senior Associate, Government Affairs.
For those who don’t have a program, DPI makes it easy: The Association’s program teaches employees the basics of hazard warning labels, material safety data sheets, hazard identification, the use of personal protective equipment, and more. The program consists of a compact disc containing an 18-minute training "video" viewable in either QuickTime of Windows Media Player formats, as well as extensive support materials and employee training guides, presented in easy-to-use PDF format.
The program is available to DPI members for $79.00, or for others (non-members) $119.00. The program’s training component is also available on a VHS video cassette, for a nominal additional charge of $10.00. Prices include shipping and handling.
