It's time to reserve your space for the Mechanical Trade Contractors of Arizona - MTCAZ (formerly Air Conditioning Contractors of Arizona) first luncheon of 2017! The January 31st luncheon will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton, Phoenix-Scottsdale @ Stonecreek Golf Course, 4415 E. Paradise Village Parkway S. Phoenix, AZ 85032 (NEW LOCATION). Connect with over 100 contractors and industry staff.
Les Rhynard of Rapid Recovery will discuss the New EPA Requirements for Air Conditioning units containing 5 lbs or more of refrigerant and the technicians requirement related to documentation. Also learn about the new leak loss rates requiring repair or replacement of system. The EPA now requires technicians to keep a record of refrigerant recovered during system disposal from systems with a charge size from 5–50 lbs.
How will the new requirements affect technicians? Technicians must handle HFC refrigerants and appliances containing HFC refrigerants in the same manner that they now handle ozone-depleting refrigerants. Implementation dates are staggered to provide time for outreach and training of technicians. Starting as early as January 1, 2017, technicians will need to comply with revised provisions.
Guest Speaker, Michael Cox of Federated Insurance will discuss Safe Driving. Not only is distracted driving a serious problem, it’s an epidemic. With each new mobile device, the potential for behind the wheel distractions increase & so does your business’s exposure to risk. Learn how to implement a mobile device/driving policy at your company, educate your employees on this hazard, and discover technology solutions that can aid in restricting mobile phone use in vehicles. It’s up to each of us to make ending distracted driving a priority—the lives of everyone important to us may depend on it.
This luncheon is sponsored by Federated Insurance.
