1005F Bonding and Grounding of Flammable Liquids Transfers
Static electricity occurs when electrons are moved about on a surface. You can reduce the effects of static electricity by using a ground. A grounding wire to earth allows the electricity to flow to ground, rather than through your body or in the case of flammable liquid flowing through a hose or pipe, static electricity will flow to the ground, thus reducing the effects of static electricity and the possibility of sparks.
Topics discussed in this safety video include: flammable liquid explosions and bonding and grounding.
1006F HAZWOPER NFPA Hazmat Labeling Information
A suggested method for identifying hazardous material containers is the modified National Fire Protection Association System. The N.F.P.A. method which is used in addition to the original container label provides quick recognition in an emergency.

1007F Chemical Safety
This program is designed to help you understand more about chemicals and chemical safety. It's important to be informed and aware of chemicals and chemical safety. The first and most important step is to stop and read the label.
Topics included in this safety video are: 4 types of chemicals (Toxic Agents, Corrosives, Flammables, and Reactives), ways in which chemicals can enter your body (Inhalation, Absorption, Ingestion, and Spillage), basic safety tips about chemicals (read the label, dress the part, follow directions, know emergency procedures, be careful and report any suspected problems, keep your work area neat, clean, and organized, store everything properly, and dispose of everything properly).
1008F Hazardous Spill Cleanup
What is a hazardous material? It’s a material that may endanger your life or health, the life or health of others, or cause damage to your facility or the environment. To handle hazardous material spills, your organization has developed procedures to control spills and emergencies. To help understand your responsibilities, you need to know how to react. By acting quickly, you can protect yourself and others and of course, prevent a spill from getting out of hand…that’s what this program is all about.
Topics included in this safety video are: your company's emergency plan, training, emergency phone numbers, PPE, proper supplies, First Aid supplies, 10 rules (Get away, Identify what you saw, Get help, Seal off the area and alert others, Look for injuries, Identify the hazards, Prepare a plan of action, Get proper equipment and materials, Contain the spill, and Clean up the spill), material safety data sheet, signs and labels, and check the material.
1014F Introduction To Toxicology
The science of toxicology, or the science of poisons, is the study of the harmful effects of chemicals on living organisms. Scientists who study these harmful effects and assess the probability of their occurrence are called toxicologists.
Topics covered in this safety video include: education and knowledge, chemical labels, Material Safety Data Sheets, signs and labels, toxicity, concentration, dose, PPM, Acute Toxicity and Chronic Toxicity, and IDLH or Immediate Danger to Life or Health.
1017F Life Saving Through Air Monitoring
Confined spaces and other similar locations can be unsuspecting chambers of death, unless you know the hazards and are prepared to avoid risks. One of the important parts of avoiding risks is to know about hazardous air or the hazards contained in the air you’re going to be breathing in confined spaces.
Topics included in this safety video are: gases to test (oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and many combustible or flammable gases), monitoring and what to look for, equipment calibration, frequent sampling, and compatible chemical mixtures.
1018F HAZWOPER - S.T.E.P. - Introduction To Emergency Preparedness
S.T.E.P. stands for Safety, Training, and Emergency Preparedness. This safety video discusses what this means and explains your responsibilities in meeting current safety, health and environmental laws, rules, and procedures. The objective of the S.T.E.P. program is to provide all the information you need to help you do your job as safely as possible.

1023F Fire Prevention Responsibility
If you smoke, do so only in designated areas. Good housekeeping is another basic safety tip. Check out those janitor closets and other storerooms to make sure there are no flammables or combustibles improperly stored. Keep the areas clean, neat, and organized.
Topics included in this safety video are: storing oily rags, electrical motors, electrical equipment, octopus plugs, flexible cords, extension cords, trash cans, exits, fire sprinkler system, telephone numbers of emergency agencies, call the fire department, types of fire extinguishers, and smoke detectors.
1035F HAZWOPER - Orientation
Over 70,000 chemicals are used by industries. Some 15,000 chemicals are made in industrial laboratories on a large scale today and between 500 and 1,000 new chemicals are introduced each year. These simple statistics provide the basis for increased awareness, training, and responsibility when working with any type of chemicals. As the environment becomes more fragile and our responsibilities in protecting the environment and people increase, training becomes absolutely critical in meeting these responsibilities. No matter how technologically advanced we’ve become with improved machines, equipment, and processes; there’s always the threat of an unplanned emergency. In emergencies the human factors and specifically the training of those persons working in and around hazardous materials must be of the highest caliber and intensity. The more you know, the better you will be able to react to emergencies. Your training can be the difference between successful containment or prevention of the emergency.
Topics included in this safety video are: HAZWOPER, federal requirements as identified in OSHA 29, code of federal regulations 1910.120, written emergency response plan, documented training, and requirements for post emergency response operations, basics of a written plan, emergency response plans, post-emergency response operations, emergency response shipment information, Bill of Lading, Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), 7 major federal environmental statutes (Clean Air Act or CAA, Clean Water Act or CWA, Toxic Substance Control Act or TASCA, Resource Conservation And Recovery Act or RECRA, Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation And Liability Act or CERCLA, Hazardous And Solid Waste Amendments or HSWA, and Super Fund Amendments And Re-authorization or SARA).
1036F HAZWOPER - Identifying Hazardous Materials
Before we can begin to understand the identification of hazardous materials, we first need to look at the toxicology of potentially harmful chemicals and hazardous materials. The basic purpose of identifying hazardous materials is to educate the person who comes in contact with the material, so as to provide proper information and protection for that person's health and safety.
Topics included in this safety video are: toxin, toxicity, ingesting, absorption, breathing, toxic effects (Acute, Chronic, Latent, and Irritant), lethal doses, lethal concentration, threshold limit values, IDLH (Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health), TLV-TWA, TLV-STEL, TLVC (Threshold Limit Value Ceiling), specific types of hazards (Air contaminants - gases, vapors, fumes, and particulates), acids and bases, basic safety tips and general precautions, MSDS and warning labels, written warnings, don't eat, drink, or smoke around chemicals, change your clothing, work area is well ventilated and wear appropriate protective clothing, clean up small spills, store acids from bases, add acid to water, solvents, injection, methods of identifying hazardous materials, Emergency Response Guidebook, secure the scene, obtain help, and decide on site entry.
1037F HAZWOPER - Medical Surveillance
Workers handling hazardous waste can experience high levels of stress; their daily tasks may expose them to toxic chemicals, safety hazards, biological hazards, and radiation. They may develop heat stress while wearing protective equipment or working under temperature extremes or face life-threatening emergencies such explosions and fires. OSHA recommends a medical evaluation for employees required to wear respirators. The program presents general guidelines for designating a medical program for personnel at hazardous waste sites. In addition, it supplies a table of some common chemical toxicant found in hazardous waste sites with recommended medical monitoring procedures.
Topics included in this safety video are: developing a program, surveillance, exams, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), emergency response program, heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and drugs and alcohol.
1038F HAZWOPER - On-Site Safety Considerations
We want to review some the key points for continuous site safety. The first key is to use all available engineering controls to eliminate or reduce site accidents. Next, safe work practices must be encouraged and implemented to eliminate or reduce site accidents and the use of personal protective equipment is particularly important when engineering controls and safe work practices are unavailable.
Topics included in this safety video are: offensive and defensive safety postures, physical and chemical hazards, six basic physical hazards i.e. kinetic/mechanical hazards (slip, trip, and fall), thermal hazards (fires, explosions, hot environments, and thermal hazards), electrical hazards (overhead power lines, cables, downed electrical lines, buried cable, electrical tools used on site), physical hazards (noise), biological hazards (poisonous plants and animals or disease producing organisms), radiological hazards (ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, engineering controls, good safe work practices and personal protective equipment), management commitment (disciplinary program, written standard operating procedures, training, Medical Surveillance Program including appropriate medical examinations, monitoring of the air, Medical base line exams, annual examinations, specific exams based upon exposures, termination exams, maintaining these records for 30 years), On Site Safety Considerations, basics of confined spaces, Permit Required (hazardous to enter unless special precautions are taken) and Non-Permit Required confined spaces (does not actually or potentially contain hazards that could cause death or serious physical harm), physical hazards you might find in a confined space (atmosphere extremely hazardous because of the lack of natural air movement can result in oxygen-deficient atmospheres, flammable atmospheres, and/or toxic atmospheres) Oxygen Deficiency, specific hazards you might find or is created by a confined space, basic checklists, medical surveillance, the actual permit, if one is required, labeling and posting requirements, atmospheric testing before entering the confined space, and preparation, safety equipment, written procedures, and record keeping.
1039F Chemical Protection Clothing
The adverse effects chemical substances may have on the human body necessitate the use of protective clothing. The predominant physical, chemical, or toxic property of the material dictates the type and degree of protection required. The hazards encountered must be thoroughly accessed before deciding on protective clothing to be worn.
Topics included in this safety video are: performance requirements, chemical resistance, strength, flexibility, thermal limits, cleanability, life span, chemical resistance, degradation, penetrability, permeability, decontamination, limitations, and problems.
1040F HAZWOPER - Respiratory Protection and Use
Respiratory protection and self-contained breathing apparatus' are used to protect us from harmful gases, fumes, vapors, and chemicals as well as where the air doesn't contain enough oxygen to support life. You need information and training on this type of equipment and the hazards involved before you attempt to use respiratory protection. Your organization will provide specific training, but this program is designed to give you some information about personal protection under adverse or hazardous conditions.
Topics included in this safety video are: basics of why the protection is needed, fundamentals of breathing, dust, gases, oxygen deficiency, respiratory protection program, training, types of protection, dust masks, fitting a disposable respirator, half mask respirators, replaceable cartridges, valves, negative air test, positive test, cleaning requirements for respirators, storing respirators, if wearing prescription glasses, air supplied respirator self-contained breathing apparatus (air lined and self-contained breathing apparatus), wearing of contact lenses, qualitative test, field test kit, employee must be clean shaven, and accurate documentation.
1041F HAZWOPER - Donning, Doffing, Decontamination
In responding to episodes involving hazardous substances, it may be necessary for response personnel to wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), and fully encapsulated suits to protect against toxic environments. Donning and doffing of both is a relatively simple task, but a routine must be established and practiced frequently. Not only do correct procedures help instill confidence in the wearer of the suit; they reduce the risks of exposure and the possibility of damage to the suit. It is especially important to remove the equipment systematically, so as to prevent or minimized the transfer of contaminants from suit to wearer.
Topics included in this safety video are: donning preparation, donning the suit, doffing, decontamination, equipment, emergency decontamination, and decontamination of patients.
1042F HAZWOPER - Site Safety and Health Plan
The purpose of the site safety plan is to establish requirements for protecting the health and safety of responders during all activities conducted at an incident. It contains safety information, instructions, and procedures. A site safety plan must be prepared and reviewed by qualified personnel for each hazardous substance response. Before operations at an incident commence, safety requirements must be written, conspicuously posted, or distributed to all response personnel and discussed with them. The safety plan must be periodically reviewed to keep it current and technically correct. In non-emergency situations such as long-term remedial action at abandoned hazardous waste sites, safety plans are developed simultaneously with the general work plan. Workers can become familiar with the plan before site activities begin.
Topics included in this safety video are: plan scope, detail and length, three general categories of response (Emergencies, Incident Characterizations, and Remedial Actions), site safety plan creation, site control issues, purpose, routine operations, on site emergencies, address emergency medical care, duties, decontamination, evacuation, implementation of the site safety plan, and responsibilities.
1046F Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon monoxide, it is a gas that can’t be smelled, tasted, or seen and virtually all industries count carbon monoxide among their potential hazards. It may arise unexpectedly as the result incomplete combustion of carbonatious material. For carbon monoxide, abbreviated CO, may be generated as a normally occurring by-product to decomposition. The incidence of carbon monoxide poisoning is unusually high in auto maintenance garages, foundries, blast furnaces, and certain chemical processes where it is used as a base chemical or generated as a waste product. CO is also a threat in non-industrial settings. In fact, CO is one of the most common chemical killers both in industry and the home. As early as 1970, it was estimated by the National Safety Council that 1600 people died from CO poisoning and at least 10,000 others suffered each year from exposure to the debilitating effects of CO. Many cases, both fatal and non-fatal, remain unreported or incorrectly diagnosed. Symptoms of CO poisoning may be easily confused with the onset of a cold, flu, or other common disorders.
Topics covered in this safety video include: affects on the Central Nervous System, the Cardio Vascular System, the brain, zone of exposure, two stages of acute poisoning, fire and explosion hazards, monitoring instruments, methods of providing protection against CO poisoning, exhaust ducts, catalytic devises, formation prevention, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), CO poisoning, and proper storage and use of equipment.
1047F Environmental Regulations of Chemical Materials
More and more companies that use hazardous chemicals are turning to an approach called chemical safety management. Chemical Safety Management, also known as Chemical Process Safety Management or Risk Management Planning, can help you identify potential risks at your site and establish an organized method for reducing those risks. It’s not a formal procedure so much as a way of doing business, an integrated philosophy that considers your entire operation rather that just pieces of it. Chemical Safety Management involves everyone in your company, day in and day out. It’s a continuous process.
Topics covered in this safety video include: chemical safety program, basic principles including inventory, reviewing entire process, conducting detailed studies, establishing and following a regular preventive maintenance program, developing standard operating procedures and training programs for employees, managing changes in the operation, investigating and documenting accidents and near accidents, developing emergency response plans for your company and coordinating them with local emergency planners, sharing information with the local community, hazard analysis, Chemical Safety Management, 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments, 7 major federal environmental standards that affect chemical materials, laws and regulations that apply to hazardous materials, and Chemical Safety Risk Management.
1042i Fall Protection
Fall protection is something that keeps you from falling from a certain height. Whenever you're working six or more feet high, OSHA requires fall protection. This program provides a quick look at the different types of fall protection.
