Change and effect

New OSHA and DOT regulations create new training and compliance challenges

As you continue your efforts to make 2013 a productive and profitable year, looming effective dates for new government regulations and proposed rules expected to be released before year-end will demand significant amounts of your attention.

Not surprisingly, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has significant regulations on the horizon affecting the roofing industry. And revised rules from the Department of Transportation (DOT) that go into effect in 2013 also will affect you and the drivers of commercial motor vehicles you employ. Before these rules and regulations become effective, be sure you are aware of the changes that undoubtedly will affect your business.
