MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Medical Surveillance Program" HAZWOPER Videotape Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and discusses various types of "medical surveillance" and how it is used to evaluate the health of anyone who regularly works around 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 substances 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 definition of medical surveillance, medical examinations, Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs), the written medical opinion, medical records, 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.
Medical Surveillance Video and DVD Excerpt: It's a fact, when you work with hazardous materials your job can be dangerous. You might have to deal with anxiety, a constant underlined fear of being killed on the job, respiratory hazards, heat stress from wearing personal protective equipment working under extreme temperatures or both. But of all the dangers you face contamination can be the most serious, because it isn't just your problem alone. If you have been contaminated you might contaminate others as well. You can spread hazardous materials to your coworkers, your family, friends and even pets. Contamination is an equal opportunity threat. Of course you would not deliberately spread hazardous materials. But depending on the types of chemicals you are handling, you might be contaminated and not know it. You need special help to detect contaminants that you would not be aware of until it is too late. That is why OSHA's hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER) requires that you participate in a medical surveillance program. But what is medical surveillance? And how does it help you? Medical surveillance is a series of medical examinations and tests that OSHA has mandated to employees who work in hazardous material environments. These examinations have two goals; the first is to uncover potential health threats the second is provide you with timely medical treatment should it be necessary.
