Whose Responsibility is Safety Anyway?

This Applicator Training Bulletin is an updated version of the article, “Whose Responsibility is Safety Anyway?” which was authored by Brendan Fitzsimons of Pyeroy Ltd. (Gateshead, UK) and offered some ideas about safety in the European Union. The article was originally published in the October 2000 issue of Protective Coatings Europe and was updated this month by Alison B. Kaelin, CQA, ABKaelin, LLC, to address current thoughts and to add information regarding the United States.

Directories/Buying Guides

Annual Industrial Painting Contractor Directory

The 2014 Annual Directory of Industrial Painting Contractors lists and describes more than 1,500 painting contractor firms located primarily in North America, but also in other countries around the world. It is designed to provide facility owners with information about contractors whom owners may wish to consider as bidders on coating and lining projects. Companies are organized alphabetically by country, state, or province. Information was obtained through a survey conducted among painting contractors known to JPCL.
