MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Work Practices and Engineering Controls" 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 nature and the "behavior" of hazardous chemicals, and reduce or eliminate potential exposure to hazardous materials in their work environments. 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 HAZMAT work practices, HAZMAT engineering controls, The Site Safety and Health Plan, responsibilities of the Site Safety and Health Officer, ventilation systems, remote-controlled equipment, the use of eyewash stations, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Log and Training Certificate. This program can be used as the basis for approximately two hours of classroom training.
Work Practices & Engineering Controls Video and DVD Excerpt: Any doctor will tell you, the best way to treat a medical problem is to prevent it from happening in the first place. This applies to hazardous materials as well. The most effective method of protecting yourself from them is to stay as far away as possible. Unfortunately steering clear of these materials is often not an option if your company uses them in it's work processes, or if you work in hazardous waste operations or emergency response. In these situations your job requires you to handle unsafe chemicals; to contain, transport or dispose of them. And you won't be able to avoid them any more than a plumber can avoid working with pipes. But you still can keep contaminants away from your face and skin, and out of your lungs if you take the proper precautions. This is what work practices and engineering controls are all about. They make up your first line of defense against hazardous substances. Work practices are administrative methods from isolating workers from hazardous materials. For instance, keeping nonessential personnel a safe distance from hazardous areas is a work practice that should be followed at all facilities. Labeling chemical containers prior to shipment is a work practice that is commonly used in transport situations.
