HAZWOPER: Work Practices and Engineering Controls
Course Length: 45 - 60 minutes
covering the essentials of work practices and engineering controls (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.
Practices and Engineering Controls helps employees to understand the nature
and "behavior" of hazardous chemicals, and how to reduce or eliminate
potential exposure to hazardous materials in their work environments through
the use of work practices and engineering controls.
This training covers the following topics:
HAZMAT work practices
Site Safety and Health Plan
of the Site Safety and Health Officer
HAZMAT engineering controls
use of eye wash stations
