Program - HAZWOPER Video Program assists facilities in complying
with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation
(29 CFR 1910.120), and discusses various types of "medical surveillance"
and how it is used to evaluate the health of anyone who regularly works
around 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 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 definition of medical
surveillance, medical examinations, Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs),
the written medical opinion, medical records, and more. The Video
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
