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. The Package of twelve Videotape 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", and "Work Practices and Engineering Controls." 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. Each Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Log and Training Certificate. Each Program can be used as the basis for approximately two hours of classroom training.
