MARCOM's "HAZWOPER General Training Package" assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and helps employees avoid exposure to hazardous chemicals. 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.
The Package of twelve Programs provides the basis for the 24 Hour training required by OSHA for HAZMAT employees who are unlikely to be exposed to hazards in excess of permissible exposure limits. The Programs include
- "Decontamination Procedures"
- "Understanding Chemical Hazards"
- "The Emergency Response Plan"
- "Understanding HAZWOPER"
- "HAZMAT Labeling"
- "Personal Protective Equipment"
- "Medical Surveillance Programs"
- "Confined Space Entry"
- "Monitoring Procedures and Equipment"
- "Accidental Release Measures and Spill Cleanup Procedures"
- "Handling Hazardous Materials"
- "Work Practices and Engineering Controls."
Also designed with the Training Manager in mind, all Courses in The Interactive CD-ROM Training Library™ include a Training Management System (at no additional cost). Using this System, trainers can set up "Pre" and "Post" tests... establish log-in procedures... even define and set up curriculum for various job classes. The System also allows employee performance information to be collected and organized through a powerful relational database, which can generate a number of record-keeping and tracking reports... and has a database "import/export" feature, which allows information to be transferred to and from an external database (such as a company's Personnel Database and/or Learning Management System). The Course is one of over 100 titles currently available in The Interactive CD-ROM Training Library™. Other Interactive Courses on Safety and Regulatory Compliance topics are currently being developed, including Spanish-language Courses, and will be available soon.
