OSHA Compliance for Printing Workshop – Fall 2018 @ Printing Industries of America Headquarters
Oct 30 – Oct 31 all-day

Over the past year, OSHA’s penalties have spiked and its officials have labeled the print industry as a high-risk occupation. In order to avoid fines and keep employees safe, staying OSHA compliant should be a top priority. However, legal jargon and comprehensive reporting requirements often make it difficult for printers to understand what is required to be compliant.

Those who attend will receive an OSHA compliance information package complete with written program templates, PIA’s popular OSHA Primer publication, and other valuable resources. The event will take place at the Printing Industries of America headquarters in Warrendale, PA. In order to make the session as informative and personal as possible, only 15 attendees will be able to register for this one-of-a-kind workshop.
