In 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the handling of hazardous waste. 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.
Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text, and colorful graphics, HAZWOPER: Accidental Release Measures and Spill Cleanup Procedures provides cost-effective, easy-to-use training. It’s divided into topic-based lessons so information is easily understood and retained. It also discusses the plans and procedures necessary to safely contain and clean up a hazardous materials spill. This course meets the employee training requirements of OSHA’s HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120).
