The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has extended the comment period for the proposed rule to update the agency’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to May 19, 2021. OSHA extended the comment period by 30 days to allow stakeholders additional time to review the proposed rule and collect information and data necessary for comment.
Nevada Safety Consultation and Training Section (SCATS) provides on and off-site safety and health consultation services to both private and public employers in Nevada. In response to a request in August 2020, SCATS conducted consultation visits at 18 Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) locations in Nevada.
These 18 locations employ over 1,700 workers. Visits were conducted in August through September of 2020 and focused on the COVID-19 protocols that the DMV locations were developing and implementing in an effort to minimize exposures to COVID-19 and keep employees and patrons safe.
