As the weather declines and the days shorten, we all spend more time indoors—time to make sure your HVAC systems are running safely.  Each year, Carbon Monoxide poisoning takes an unfortunate toll, and a few simple checks can save lives.  Inspect your home and workplace systems soon!  This week’s regulatory activity was light; here the

DG Digest: TSA Expanding Biometric Data to Pre-Check Customers and OSHA Issues IRC on ‘Control of Hazardous Energy.’

Halloween has come and gone, and November is rushing right in with the holiday season just around the corner.  Will regulatory activity speed up with the season?  We’ll have to wait and see.  Here’s what was new this week, with Information Collection Requests and meeting notices being the primary stories: OSHA The agency renewed an

DG Digest: U.S. DOT Opens Comments on Draft Strategic Plans through 2022

If you are reading this on the regular distribution, then it’s Halloween Day.  Happy Halloween!  The Labelmaster family hopes that everyone enjoys the holiday safely.  This is a two week digest to cover last week’s “skip,” however, activity remains quite low and as such, we have a fairly minimal report for you.  Here’s what was

DG Digest: DOT, EPA and Other Agencies Set Semi-Annual Priorities

What every hazmat shipper should know about tagboard hazmat placards

DG Digest: despite persistent rumors of movement, HM-215N remains in limbo

Happy Daylight Savings Time!  Hopefully the famed “National Jet Lag Day” has not caused you too much angst.  Statistics show that the Monday following the “Spring Forward” time shift is a peak day for traffic accidents, so please be extra careful.  Regulatory activity continues at fairly low ebb, although it does seem to be slowly

DG Digest: PHMSA Harmonization, DOT Updates Drug-Test Program, and the EPA Modernizes Risk Management Plan

The week kicks off with the new Trump administration in place in Washington placing a “moratorium” on new rulemaking on the federal level.  Rulemakings already in the pipeline will potentially be delayed as well.  At press time the exact impact of the action is still somewhat cloudy.  Be sure to see next week’s blog for

DG Digest: PHMSA v. Pittsburgh, FAA Backs Off a Bit, & DOT Being “Spooky”

Here it is mid-July already!  We here at Labelmaster hope your plans for a summer break are on your schedule, but the regulatory world seems to be seeing little change of pace—those agencies are out there and staying busy with new information and requirements.  Here’s the latest: PHMSA Pre-empts Pittsburgh, PA In an interesting turn
