MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Understanding HAZWOPER" HAZWOPER Videotape Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), explains the regulations, and helps employees reduce or eliminate potential exposure to hazardous materials in their work environments. 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 history of the HAZWOPER regulations, definitions of hazardous chemicals and waste, container labels, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs), the site safety and health plan, HAZWOPER training requirements, the site control program, monitoring of hazardous substances, the medical surveillance program, decontamination, 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.
Understanding HAZWOPER Video and DVD Excerpt: In 1986 OSHA issued the Interim Final Rule for HAZARDOUS WASTE OPERATIONS and EMERGENCY RESPONSE. Four years later this HAZWOPER rule was finalized. It affects workers at hazardous waste treatment and storage facilities, hazardous waste cleanup operations and emergency response operations involving hazardous materials. The purpose of this presentation is to help you understand the HAZWOPER regulation. Your rights and responsibilities as a worker in this industry and how to work safely around hazardous substances. Let's start with a basic question. What makes a substance hazardous? There is no simple answer. We need to look at several sources of information to get a complete definition. In OSHA's hazard communication standard a hazardous chemical is defined as "any chemical which is either a physical hazard or health hazard". According to OSHA these physical hazards include combustibles, flammables, explosives, oxidizers, organic peroxides, reactive chemicals and compressed gases. Health hazards include sensitizers, irritants, corrosives, toxic and highly toxic agents and carcinogens. The US department of transportation lists the materials it considers hazardous in it's hazardous material table. According to D.O.T a hazardous material is basically "any substance which presents an unreasonable risk when transported".
