Anago of Western PA Franchise Owners Compliant with New Osha Changes
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA – October 22, 2013 – The Anago of Western PA Monthly Franchise Owner’s Meeting for October 2013 brought Franchise Owners up to date with new OSHA requirements regarding MSDS sheets and chemical labeling.
Guest Speaker Paul Bertenthal, President of D.H. Bertenthal and Sons Cleaning and Maintenance Supplies, presented the day’s meeting in conjunction with Toby Dietzel, a Regional Sales Manager for Pro-Link Janitorial Supplies.
OSHA has mandated that all employers train their employees regarding the upcoming change from MSDS sheets to Universal SDS sheets, as well as changes in chemical labeling and universal pictograms, by December 1, 2013. Mr. Bertenthal and Mr. Dietzel discussed how these changes would impact Franchise Owners’ businesses and provided the information that Franchise Owners would need in order to become compliant.
“We brought in these experts and held this meeting today so that our Franchisees had the knowledge and skills required to train their employees in these matters prior to OSHA’s deadline,” stated Anago of Western PA Vice President Bill Ross. “We want all of our Franchisees operating their businesses both safely and in full compliance with Government regulations.”
A special drawing was also held during this month’s meeting. One lucky Franchise Owner won a pair of Pitt Football tickets to the Panthers’ November 16th home game at Heinz Field!
The meeting was held on October 21, 2013 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Anago of Western PA Regional Support Office (300 Old Pond Road, Suite 202, Pittsburgh, PA 15017). A lunch, courtesy of Anago of Western PA, was provided at the conclusion of the meeting.
