Kushner Plating School Adds Globally Harmonized System Labeling And Safety Data Sheet Training

15. April 2014



The Kushner Electroplating School says that all English language seminar programs both live and on-line web based versions have been updated with new content supporting the Globally Harmonized System Labeling and Safety Data Sheet information.


Effective this year, the Hazard Communication Standard for all facilities with hazardous materials must comply with employee training on the new GHS labeling and safety data sheets.

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard was revised in 2013 and although importers and manufacturers of hazardous chemicals are not required to update all labeling of hazardous material until June 1, 2015, every owner/operator of industries using those hazardous materials is required to train employees about the new label changes as of this year, 2014.

“Attending one of our live seminars or completing the on-line version of Electroplating Know-How Basics web training program will provide our clients with the information necessary to comply with the new GHS regulations," said William Sepp, Program Director.

Kushner’s Spanish language seminars have also been updated with the new GHS information and the release of an on-line Spanish training program will be available shortly.

7. April 2014

David Beamish, DeFelsko President, accepts the award.


DeFelsko’s PosiTector Interchangeable Probes for inspection instruments has been named a Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year.


The American designed and manufactured PosiTector body accepts all interchangeable probes including coating thickness (6000/200/PC), environmental (DPM), surface profile (RTR/SPG), and ultrasonic wall thickness (UTG) probes.


This innovation allows quick and easy conversion from a coating thickness gage to a surface profile gage, dew point meter or ultrasonic wall thickness gage with a simple probe change. Each probe retains its own unique calibration information allowing for full probe interchangeability, an industry first.


The MP Corrosion Innovation of the Year Awards showcase progressive technological developments in all aspects of corrosion prevention and mitigation and recognize the innovators who have created revolutionary solutions to combat corrosion and protect vital assets from its damaging effects.


Winners were announced at the recent Corrosion 2014, NACE International’s leading corrosion conference and expo.


David Beamish, DeFelsko President, was on hand to proudly accept the award on behalf of the entire DeFelsko staff located in Ogdensburg, New York.


“We are very honored that a panel of leading experts in the field of corrosion chose our interchangeable PosiTector probes as the most innovative product,” said Beamish, “A sincere thank you to all who voted for us as we continue to pioneer new instrumentation for inspectors.”
