In case you haven’t checked it out yet, the April issue of GAWDA Edge is now available on the Web at www.gawdaedge.org. It’s got a “spring training” theme and is jam-packed with articles that will help you do your job better. One such article deals with the gases and welding industry’s constantly changing rules and regulations.
Much like Major League Baseball clubs have to manage an ever-changing rulebook, gases and welding distributors have a lot to keep up with. Unfortunately, in the industrial environment, there’s much more than just one committee to worry about. From the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to the Internal Revenue Service, regulatory bodies of all shapes and sizes are constantly updating and implementing procedures, regulations and mandates.
Ideally, it is incumbent upon management to make sure that employees understand and abide by these changing regulations. However, much like in baseball, each player or employee is ultimately responsible for his or her own compliance with the rules.
This article will help you do just that. So head on over to www.gawdaedge.org and check it out!
