"Safety Orientation" HAZWOPER Compliance Videotape Program
assists facilities in complying with the employee training
requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120),
and helps employees avoid exposure to hazardous materials.
The Program instructs employees about how to reduce or
eliminate potential exposure to hazardous materials in
their work environments. 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 materials receive comprehensive training in
1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued
the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate
the handling of hazardous waste "from cradle to grave".
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.
