MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Accidental Release Measures and Spill Cleanup Procedures" 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 plans and procedures necessary to safely contain and cleanup a hazardous materials spill. 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 the hazard communication program, the emergency response plan, the five levels of HAZWOPER emergency response training, personal protective equipment, site characterization, spill cleanup, decontamination 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.
Accidental Release Measures & Spill Cleanup Video and DVD Excerpt: When you are dealing with hazardous materials even a tiny release can become a major problem. It might look like nothing more than a common puddle, or if it's a gas you might not see it at all. But it can be very dangerous. Large or small, a hazardous material's release is a situation that must be dealt with quickly and efficiently. No matter where you work there is always the possibility a release of hazardous materials will occur. Without a plan of action to deal with these incidents, it could already be too late to respond effectively. By thinking ahead you can save precious time, and be ready for any possibility. Planning for emergencies takes everyone's cooperation. You can begin by participating in your company's hazard communication program. It provides you with the information you need to understand the hazards of the chemicals you work with, chemical labeling and material safety data sheets. You will also find that the spill guidelines for your facility can be helpful. These are instructions for cleaning various types of chemical spills in your workplace. In addition you should ask your supervisor where you can get a copy of your company's emergency response plan. This plan spells out how to report and handle emergencies at your location, and includes information on the roles of personnel participating in a response. Lines of authority, methods of communication, emergency recognition and prevention, site security and evacuation.
