When it comes to storage, having pallets on hand is a necessity. Traditional wood pallets are good for a number of reasons. They have a fairly long service life, can hold a lot of weight and are convenient for use with a forklift in a warehouse setting. But just like with most everything else, there are drawbacks as well. The wood can split easily, a loose nail can cause a safety hazard and they can become expensive to have to replace on a consistent basis.
There is an alternative option: plastic pallets. While plastic pallets won’t work for everyone, there are a number of benefits to using them if they are a viable option for you and your business.
Back in January, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) published a final rule on the Occupational Exposure to Beryllium that was supposed to go into effect on March 21.
It was announced on March 22 that the effective date has been delayed until May 20.
This announcement followed a memorandum from the White House after the administration change that directed the department to undertake a review of any new or pending regulations and temporarily postpone the date that they would take effect.
The proposed delay will allow OSHA an opportunity for further review and consideration for the rule. The extension of the effective date will not affect the compliance dates of the beryllium rule.
