Description: MARCOM's "Fire Prevention" HAZWOPER Videotape Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and helps employees understand the hazards of fire when combined with hazardous materials. Hazardous materials and waste are part of many work situations, and can be found on many types of job sites. OSHA feels that it is so important for employees to know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances (as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly) they have mandated that anyone working with these materials receive comprehensive training in this area. In 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the handling of hazardous waste "from cradle to grave". Since then other regulations have followed, including OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.120, also known as HAZWOPER. As part of these regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training, depending on an employee's specific level of involvement with hazardous materials.

Areas covered in the program include the three components of fire, sources of ignition, types of fuel, the four classes of fire, approved storage containers, safety measures during a chemical spill, using fire extinguishers, evacuation procedures, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Log and Training Certificate. The program can be used as the basis for approximately two hours of classroom training.

Fire Prevention Video and DVD Excerpt: High temperatures, smoke, toxic fumes these are just a few of the dangers that chemical fires present. Moving quickly, these fires can have devastating results. They require special fire fighting techniques, and are often difficult to control. When chemical fires release corrosive or toxic gasses the safety and health of the surrounding community can also be affected. Some emergencies may even require people to evacuate. All of these hazards make combating chemical fires especially dangerous. Of course the best way to fight a fire is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. But to do this, you need to know what causes things to burn. Fire requires 3 component; heat, fuel and oxygen. Removing any one of these will extinguish a fire. Let's look at each of them in detail. For a fire to start it needs some type of heat to ignite it. Sources of ignition include; open flames, sparks from cutting and welding, electrical short circuits, unshielded hot surfaces and friction between materials, which can generate heat and static electricity. In addition chemical reactions can produce enough heat to cause materials to burst into flames. Some chemicals like nitro glycerin are shock sensitive and explode when they are shaken.
