Hazardous materials are common in many workplaces, so much so that it is mandated by OSHA for anyone who works near or with these substances must receive comprehensive training on material hazards and safety protocols.
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.
Our training course on HAZWOPER: HAZMAT Labeling was created to help employees understand different the labeling systems they may encounter and how to use these systems to reduce or eliminate potential exposure to hazardous materials in their work environments.
