MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Exposure Monitoring and Medical Surveillance" HAZWOPER Compliance 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 exposure monitoring equipment and techniques. The program also explains "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. It is so important that employees know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances, as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly, that OSHA mandates 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 direct-reading instruments, sampling collection devices, site characterization, general on-site monitoring, perimeter monitoring, personal monitoring, medical examinations and written medical opinions, 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.
Exposure Monitoring and Medical Surveillance Video and DVD Excerpt: If you work around hazardous materials, HAZWOPER should be one of the most important words in your vocabulary. You probably know that HAZWOPER stands for, Hazardous Waste Operations & Emergency Response. It is the OSHA regulation that helps to protect you from hazardous materials at; hazardous waste sites, in treatment, disposal and storage facilities or in emergency response situations. The goal of HAWOPER is to minimize your risk exposure to hazardous waste. This requires many safeguards, including; exposure monitoring and medical surveillance. Exposure monitoring is concerned with the detection of any airborne contaminant that might be present where you work. Whether it's a hazardous gas, vapor or dust, contaminants you inhale are among the most dangerous because many chemicals pass easily from the lungs into the bloodstream. Exposure monitoring helps protect you by detecting these airborne hazards. Medical surveillance means watching the health of everyone who regularly works around hazardous materials. Your medical surveillance began prior to your first day of work, and will continue for as you run the risk of exposure. Both exposure monitoring and medical surveillance are ways to uncover potential threats to your health as early as possible. They are also crucial to determining what protective measures you need to take while performing your job.
