OSHA revised its Hazard Communication

Standard (HCS) to align with the United Nations
Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
Two significant changes contained in the revised
standard require the use of new labeling elements
and a standardized format for Safety Data Sheets
(SDSs), formerly known as, Material Safety Data
Sheets (MSDSs). The new label elements and SDS
requirements will improve worker understanding of
the hazards associated with the chemicals in their
GHS has three broad categories of hazards:
Health Hazards (29 CFR 1910.1200
Appendix A)
Physical Hazards (29 CFR 1910.1200

Early Training Renewals

We are presently contacting offshore personnel with
training expirations in August, September, and October.

These personnel are being requested to come in

NOW and renew training that will be expiring in
August, September, or October.
A large number of offshore and shore based
personnel are expiring in August, September, or
October. This will further complicate scheduling
training renewals during that time.
Renewing the training at the earlier time is needed
for more effective planning in the HSE and Training
Well Control, T2, Water Survival, and Rigger are
ULTRA HIGH PRIORITY. Do not let these
certifications expire!
Expired training will require you to be placed "off
board". Renew early to avoid this from

Contact Toney Mitchell to schedule all training.

Stay safe while at the beach this summer! This

could save your life. Do you know what a rip current
looks like? We have probably all seen them and
weren't aware of the danger. When you see waves
and then a small section of "flat" waves in between,
that's a rip current. The water is moving in the
opposite direction. Stay clear of these areas!! This is
NOT a calm place to hang out with small children.
Rip currents form as water piles up close to the
shore. Then, there is a break in a sand bar along the
ocean floor and a fast moving river rushes back out
to sea. Within seconds, the current can whisk a
swimmer hundreds of yards away from the shore.
Rip currents usually form in oceans but also take
lives almost every year in the Great Lakes.
The USLA advises to not fight the current if you
are caught in one. Instead, relax and swim
parallel to the shore and find a break in the
current before swimming back toward the shore.
Churning, choppy water is one of the easiest clues
to identify rip currents, according to USLA.
