Chattanooga, TN, December 1, 2013 /3BL Media/ – U.S. Xpress Enterprises, Inc. is the latest global brand to entrust Source Intelligence® to take-on their material safety data sheet management requirement under the Occupational Health and Safety Administration’s (OSHA) 29 CFR 1910.1200 standard (HazCom 2012) and, where applicable, the current standard (HazCom 1994).
“OSHA’s final rule combines the Hazard Communication Standard with the Globally Harmonized System of Chemical Classification and Labeling (GHS)”, explained Scott Hepner, Director of Source Intelligence’s Environmental Health and Safety Compliance Solutions. “Source Intelligence® serves a stable of industry leaders like U.S. Xpress with a comprehensive compliance solution that addresses Hazard classification, Labeling and marking, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) Management, and information distribution and training. Importantly, MSDS compliance is just one application of Source Intelligence’s® robust environmental, social and sustainability compliance platform.”
“U.S. Xpress is committed to excellence and believes in setting high standards for our company and our employees,” commented Amy Lokken, Vice President, Safety, “To provide superior service to our customers we sought a new generation compliance platform that integrated technology and environmental experts available 24/7 that could handle our MSDS compliance and expand into other compliance programs for regulated materials up and down the entire supply chain. Source Intelligence’s® solution and team of experts offered exactly what we were looking for.”
Beginning November 2013, U.S. Xpress and Source Intelligence® entered a multi-year contract moving from training on the new label elements and MSDS format to complying with all modified provisions of the final rule by December 1, 2015 when distributors may no longer ship products labeled by manufacturers under the old system.
