As of November 1, 2007, the National Funeral Directors Association entered into an agreement with Stericycle. It will be their job to operate the NFDA OSHA support line.
This job was initially manned by Jay Burnside. Jay was an embalmer and a safety consultant. Following his death, Ed Ranier, an NFDA legal council and a member of Maryland's Occupational Health and Safety board, manned the position. If there was a legal issue, Ed would give those calling their options. If the question related to a technical matter, he would refer callers to an embalmer/safety consultant.
