August 2, 2013 | The PHMSA recently announced the beginning of a pilot program in conjunction with the “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” (MAP). The purpose of the pilot program is to test the effectiveness of using paperless Hazard Communication Systems.
The PHMSA is currently accepting volunteers interested in participating in the pilot program to test electronic systems for hazard communication.
Since 2007, the PHMSA has shown interest in a paperless system, with the hopes that it will help foster a good relationship between transportation and regulatory agencies. The PHMSA wants to continue to promote safe and efficient practices that are also cost effective.
If you are interested in learning more about the program, you may contact the PHMSA here. Interested parties must submit their comments or inquiries by September 17, 2013.
