AFS holds first annual Metalcasting Safety Week.

AFS successfully hosted its first Metalcasting Safety Week May 4-11.

During the week, AFS offered three webinars relating to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The first, "OSHA's Revisions to the Hazard Communication Standard," discussed the newly finalized revisions to the standard and how it differs from Global Harmonization. "OSHA Recordkeeping: Doing it Right" was hosted by former OSHA head Edwin Foulke. The final webinar, "OSHA Hot Topics," discussed the agency's priorities and the status of rules such as the Crystalline Silica Rule.


AFS also offered a variety of its safety publications at a discounted rate during the week.

"For its first time around, Metalcasting Safety Week was a successful event," said Alfred Spada, AFS director of marketing. "We look forward to making it bigger and better in the future."
