Prop 65 Regulations – Is Your Facility Compliant?

The new porting requirements for Proposition 65 warnings went into effect on August 30, 2018. This presentation will include a discussion of the regulatory changes for consumer, occupational and environmental postings and notices that now require clear and reasonable warnings that list at least one chemical for each endpoint. Safe harbor warning language for specific exposures (designated smoking areas, enclosed parking garages, petroleum products, vehicle and diesel engines) will be presented. Some of the warnings require specific font and sign size. Exceptions and exemptions will be discussed. Specific examples of warning language will be presented along with an evaluation process for the applicability of various chemicals and individual exposures. Finally, the Proposition 65 chemicals list along with the OEHHA list of “safe harbor” levels (No Significant Risk Levels – NSRLs and Maximum Allowable Dose Levels – MADLs), will be reviewed.

Developing and Implementing a Safety Committee

Safety committees can serve a variety of functions, depending on the facility’s safety culture, the amount of training they receive as committee members and the amount of time the management allows committee members to dedicate to safety. Effective safety committees are diverse and should include employees from all company departments. Some of the more common functions for safety committees include:

  • Being a liaison group between employees and management
  • Increasing awareness of safety at the facility
  • Identifying workplace risks and creating a plan (or making recommendations) to
    reduce risk
  • Integrating safety and health priorities into corporate culture
  • Encouraging safety training for employees and management
  • Conducting and evaluating audits
  • Performing routine safety inspections

During this course we will explore the OSHA requirements regarding a safety committee and what truly works.
