MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Monitoring Procedures and Equipment" HAZWOPER Videotape Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and discusses the importance of detecting hazardous materials, as well as the equipment and procedures used in the process. 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 in the program include detecting hazardous materials, direct-reading monitoring instruments, sampling collection devices, hazards that are "Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health" (IDLH), confined spaces, general on-site monitoring, perimeter, periodic and personal monitoring, 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.
Monitoring Procedures & Equipment Video and DVD Excerpt: Contamination from hazardous materials is one of the most significant dangers you face while on the job. You know of course that contamination can make you severely ill and even kill you. But the danger doesn't stop there. Once you are contaminated, you can expose others as well. Without meaning to you can spread hazardous materials to your coworkers, your family, friends even pets. Contamination doesn't always end with you. And if you don't protect yourself, it won’t. To combat the dangers of contamination OSHA has developed a broad range of regulations. Foremost among these is the hazardous waste operations and emergency response standard commonly known as HAZWOPER. HAZWOPER sets the guidelines for all hazardous material activities, from storage, to handling, to disposal. One of the most important areas it addresses is monitoring. Monitoring covers two broad activities, detection and surveillance. Detection involved determining what hazardous materials are present at a site; this includes airborne contaminants such as gases, vapors and dust as well as pollutants in water or soil. Detecting airborne hazards is especially important, because the contaminants you inhale are among the most dangerous, since many chemicals pass most easily from the lungs into the blood stream.
