In our last webinar, "The Safety Data Sheet (SDS) - A Vital Tool in the Product Stewardship Toolbox," we took a deep dive into the SDS regulatory requirements, uses, frequent barriers, and process improvements. The webinar was incredibly well received and generated so many questions we were unable to answer them all. We took all the questions we couldn’t get to and summarized them below. 

Thank you for joining us for our enlightening webinar, "Bringing Shippers and Carriers Together: The Give and Take of Shipping – Bulk Edition." As proven by the recent pandemic, it is clear that our way of life heavily relies on the continuous and uninterrupted transport of raw materials and finished products across our country and the rest of the globe.

In hazardous waste operations and emergency response, safety and preparedness are vital. The Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standards, outlined in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120, provide guidelines necessary for the protection of workers engaged in such activities. One key aspect of HAZWOPER is the requirement for individuals to undergo regular refresher training to maintain their knowledge and skills. In this blog, we will delve into why CHEMTREC’s new HAZWOPER 8-Hour Refresher training is important and who need to take it.

Many of the trends emerging or intensifying in the transportation and logistics sector in 2023 are driven more than ever by the need to obtain, analyze, and manage a wide array of data efficiently and effectively. Many carrier operations and government policies had already begun laying the groundwork, but the destabilization of the global supply chain during the pandemic forced all stakeholders to re-think and re-prioritize the “what, how, and why?” of every link in that chain - the disruption highlighted weaknesses, strengths, and the relative effectiveness of every solution.
