HAZWOPER: Monitoring Procedures and Equipment
Course Length: 45 - 60 minutes
covering the essentials of monitoring procedures and equipment (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.
Procedures and Equipment discusses the importance of detecting hazardous
materials, as well as the equipment and procedures used in the process.
