Did you know that the Carpet and Rug Institute has a wholelibrary of technical bulletins on its website? That’s right - CRI has an entire section oftechnical bulletins, white papers and scientific research relating to carpet available for anyone with the time (and patience) to access.
Eleven of these important technical documents have been updated in 2012. (See Carpet and Rug Institute Updates 11 Technical Bulletins.) Additional bulletins are scheduled for review and updating in 2013.
This week, we feature excerpts from the OSHAHazard Communication Act Technical Bulletin.

Finished carpet exhibits performance parameters which meet all of the requirements as specified in the definition of an “Article”; therefore, carpet is classified as an “Article” and exempt from the Hazard Communication Act.
