Regulation Watch: OSHA Reporting Requirements to Affect Glass Companies
Fabricating glass and glazing systems involves encountering the potential for injury. Despite best efforts to exercise safe practices and provide appropriate safety equipment, injuries do occur. As of Jan. 1, 2017, those injuries are also potentially recordable events under new, federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration electronic reporting guidelines. And while these rules are subject to change, a quick overview of these requirements is due.
The June issue of Glass Magazine will highlight new and innovative commercial window products and window components. To be included, complete the submission form by April 11.

From the Fabricator: Awesome Retrofit
By Max Perilstein
One of the big issues we face with energy are old, energy-sucking buildings. I am confident that every new building that goes up at least pays some mind to energy efficiency, but we need to make sure old buildings are brought up to speed.
