ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (June 13, 2014) — The Coordinating Committee for Automotive Repair (CCAR) and ShipMate Inc. have launched of an online safety course for employees in the automotive industry who handle hazardous chemicals.
The new course—GHS Hazard Communication Standard—is available on ShipMate’s website. It is offered with a 12-month online subscription at the introductory price of $19 per individual or $99 per facility.
The course provides updated information from the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), which revised its Hazard Communication Standard to align with the United Nation’s Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).
CCAR provides information and resources for OEM dealers, collision repair centers, schools and mechanical service centers. ShipMate works with clients handling dangerous goods transportation, environmental management and safety issues.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
