Update on the SRBC Proposed Rulemaking
We previously indicated that the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) has proposed rulemaking that would amend their regulations to update the requirements and standards for review of projects, amend the rules dealing with groundwater withdrawals, and revise the regulatory triggers related to grandfathered sources.

This is the link to a public outreach virtual meeting SRBC held recently, as clarification to what they are proposing. For your convenience, here are links to proposed rulemaking and 3 new policies.

Should you have any questions or comments, contact Josie Gaskey.

Managing Workplace Safety and Health in 2021 - A Webinar by Fisher Phillips
When - April 29 at 11:00 AM

2021 is shaping up as a year of unprecedented uncertainty for employers in the area of workplace safety and health. From the persistence of COVID-19 to the vaccine rollout to a change in regulatory agenda presented by the new Presidential administration, employers are faced with everchanging requirements and expectations and need to adapt quickly. This presentation will cover timely topics in managing workplace safety and health, including what to expect from MSHA and OSHA, the latest on the impact of vaccines in the workplace and a discussion of the rise of safety-related whistleblower complaints. It will offer a discussion of best practices in these changing times and invite questions from participants.

This webinar is being presented by PACA members Arthur Wolfson & Patrick Dennison of Fisher Phillips and is being provided to PACA members only. We hope you will join us to learn more about protecting yourself, your business and your personnel.

Safety & Health News
Opioid Hazard Awareness for the Mining & Construction Industries
A recent study has shown the top two industry categories to receive more prescriptions, stronger prescriptions and longer prescriptions are mining (including oil/gas) and construction. Analyses of the death certificates of those who have died of opioid overdose show that workers in physically-demanding jobs have been disproportionately impacted.

We encourage you to check out the information found here, in particular, the fully narrated MSHA Opioid Training Module found on the training materials site noted above. Funded by the Alpha Foundation for the Improvement of Mine Safety and Health, this free information and training materials were recently highlighted in Rock Products magazine. And while these materials were designed to meet MSHA Part 46 Refresher training, we hope this information will be useful to all our members companies.

Should you have any questions, contact Josie Gaskey.
