HAZWOPER Emergency Response Awareness Video Package

HAZWOPER Emergency Response: Awareness 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 materials. 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 two Videotape Programs thoroughly covers information that every HAZMAT worker should know. The Programs include "Understanding HAZWOPER", and "The Emergency Response Plan."

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

Frequently Asked Questions: Customers often ask if the training provided by this package of videos will fulfill government requirements. A related question is what qualifications must an instructor have in order for the training to be valid. These questions arise when an organization is trying to develope their own training program to avoid the expense of hiring outside instructors. Our answers to these questions are as follows:

The videos can be used as the core of a training course, however, the videos must be shown by a live person capable of answering questions about the material. Here is a link to a letter from the government that interprets the rules on this point:

OSHA Letter

 

The following is the opinion of Nevada Technical Associates, Inc. about government requirements. The government does NOT require that HAZWOPER instructors be certified. The Federal regulations for instructors are as follows:

1910.120(e)(5) "Qualifications for trainers. Trainers shall be qualified to instruct employees about the subject matter that is being presented in training. Such trainers shall have satisfactorily completed a training program for teaching the subjects they are expected to teach, or they shall have the academic credentials and instructional experience necessary for teaching the subjects. Instructors shall demonstrate competent instructional skills and knowledge of the applicable subject matter."

The qualifications required of HAZWOPER instructors as given above are not very restrictive. We, Nevada Technical Associates, Inc., interpret the above regulations to mean that the instructor must have experience with the subject matter and be able to do a competent job of teaching it. Therefore we believe that it should not be be very difficult for a company to find an in-house instructor with sufficient education and knowledge in this area to conduct a valid training program with the aid of this video tape series. We note that it is very common for HAZWOPER instructors to have considerable practical experience in the subject and yet not have much higher education (i.e. a bachelors degree). It would still be the responsiblity of the purchaser of these tapes to insure that the instructor meets the minimum requirements, as set forth by the above regulations. In other words, the above video package does not in itself constitute a training program that meets government requirements, but the package can provide the core of a training program if the training is conducted by an instructor who meets the above requirements and is able to answer questions about the material.
