MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "The Emergency Response Plan" Videotape Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and instructs employees who deal with hazardous materials why planning for emergencies is critical for their safety. 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 the chain of command, the responsibilities of the Incident Commander, the responsibilities of the HAZMAT Specialist, the responsibilities of the HAZMAT Technician, the responsibilities of the First Responder, communication procedures and the "buddy system", personal protective equipment, safe work practices, 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.
Emergency Response Plan Video and DVD Excerpt: Sirens blear, smoke rises, people scatter yet somehow it seems unreal. This is how hazardous material emergencies appear to must of us when we see them on television. But no matter how they look on the small screen, it's nothing compared to what a HAZMAT situation is like when it happens at your facility. When you face a chemical emergency in real life, you and your company are dealing with an event that can quickly grown out of control, threatening the entire area including surrounding communities. No one ever knows when a crisis will occur, but that doesn't mean that your company is helpless, you can prepare for emergencies by having a written plan of action, an emergency response plan. In fact OSHA feels that this is so important that they require all employers who deal with hazardous materials to have one of these plans. The emergency response plan helps emergency responders to prepare for hazardous chemical accidents before they occur.
