HAZWOPER: Fire Prevention
Course Length: 45 - 60 minutes
covering the essentials of fire prevention (HAZWOPER).
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. 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.
Prevention helps employees to understand the special hazards that can be
created when hazardous materials catch fire, and what can be done to help
prevent this from occurring.
