You are invited to join a meeting on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 of the Delaware Committee of Healthcare Facility Managers Association of Delaware Valley, a Chapter under ASHE (The American Society for Healthcare Engineering).  The meeting will be held at the Christiana Hospital located in Newark, Delaware. 

OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1153 went into effect in June 2016 and, after a recent 90 day extension for contractors to prepare implementation, will require full compliance by September 23, 2017.  With this regulation change, there are new standards with which industry professionals will be required to comply.  Simplifying a complex government-issued standard is no easy task.  To assist in the process, Hilti facilitated a recent forum with our top customers, industry regulators and other industry experts.  Participants of the workshop met in August 2016 and the end result was a white paper on the topic.  The purpose of this document is to summarize the key points contained in the extensive standard released by OSHA.  The presentation will be a review of the white paper and help educate attendees on these new standards as well as provide an overview of the different solutions and how they fit into the new OSHA code.

About the Speaker:  Lizanne Pepin, P.E. CSI, CDT has been part of the Hilti technical support team in the greater Philadelphia area for the past 10 years.  She started as a field engineer supporting Hilti specified product lines and mainly assisting design professionals on designing with and specifying Hilti products.  She is now a project manager for the region supporting full project teams on a vast array of technical topics related to the full portfolio of Hilti products.
