MARCOM's "Understanding Chemical Hazards" HAZWOPER Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and introduces employees to chemical hazard regulations and provides training on the various types of hazardous chemicals found in industrial 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 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 chemical hazard concepts, types of hazardous chemicals, characteristics and effects of various types of chemicals, the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), container labeling, safe handling practices, use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), spills and cleanup, and more.
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.
