HAZWOPER Training Videos - Standard Package
The Hazcom standard training package includes 8 videos and a CD-Rom of written materials.
1035F HAZWOPER - Orientation
Over 70,000 chemicals are used by industries. Some 15,000 chemicals are made in industrial laboratories on a large scale today and between 500 and 1,000 new chemicals are introduced each year. These simple statistics provide the basis for increased awareness, training, and responsibility when working with any type of chemicals.
1036F HAZWOPER - Identifying Hazardous Materials
Before we can begin to understand the identification of hazardous materials, we first need to look at the toxicology of potentially harmful chemicals and hazardous materials. The basic purpose of identifying hazardous materials is to educate the person who comes in contact with the material, so as to provide proper information and protection for that person's health and safety.
1037F HAZWOPER - Medical Surveillance
Workers handling hazardous waste can experience high levels of stress; their daily tasks may expose them to toxic chemicals, safety hazards, biological hazards, and radiation. They may develop heat stress while wearing protective equipment or working under temperature extremes or face life-threatening emergencies such as explosions and fires. OSHA recommends a medical evaluation for employees required to wear respirators. The program presents general guidelines for designating a medical program for personnel at hazardous waste sites. In addition, it supplies a table of some common chemical toxicant found in hazardous waste sites with recommended medical monitoring procedures.
1042F HAZWOPER - Site Safety and Health Plan
The purpose of a site safety plan is to establish requirements and safety procedures for protecting the health and safety of responders during activities conducted at an incident. A site safety plan must be prepared and reviewed by qualified personnel for each hazardous substance response. This program provides an overview of the contents of a site safety and health plan.
1038F HAZWOPER - On-Site Safety Considerations
Workers handling hazardous waste can experience high levels of stress; their daily tasks may expose them to toxic chemicals, safety hazards, biological hazards, and radiation. They may develop heat stress while wearing protective equipment or working under temperature extremes or face life-threatening emergencies such as explosions and fires.
1039F Chemical Protection Clothing
The adverse effects chemical substances may have on the human body necessitate the use of protective clothing. The predominant physical, chemical or toxic property of the material dictates the type and degree of protection required. The hazards encountered must be thoroughly accessed before deciding on protective clothing to be worn.
1040F HAZWOPER - Respiratory Protection and Use
Respiratory protection and self-contained breathing apparatus' are used to protect us from harmful gases, fumes, vapors, and chemicals as well as where the air doesn't contain enough oxygen to support life. You need information and training on this type of equipment and the hazards involved before you attempt to use respiratory protection.
1041F HAZWOPER - Donning, Doffing, Decontamination
In responding to episodes involving hazardous substances, it may be necessary for response personnel to wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), and fully encapsulated suits to protect against toxic environments. Donning and doffing of both is a relatively simple task, but a routine must be established and practiced frequently.
