Product Line: MARCOM HAZWOPER Series
MARCOM's "HAZWOPER Emergency Response: HAZMAT Technician" CD-ROM Package 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 package of eleven courses provides the basis for the special training required by HAZMAT Technicians, who get the situation under control during any hazardous materials emergency. The courses include "Decontamination Procedures", "Understanding Chemical Hazards", "The Emergency Response Plan", "Understanding HAZWOPER", "HAZMAT Labeling", "Personal Protective Equipment", "Accidental Release Measures and Spill Cleanup Procedures", "Medical Surveillance Programs", "ANSI MSDS", "Respiratory Protection", and "Monitoring Procedures and Equipment." 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 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 "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. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, each course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. Each course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained. Also designed with the training manager in mind, all courses in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library include a learning management system (at no additional cost). Using this system, trainers can set up "Pre" and "Post" tests... establish log-in procedures... even define and set up curriculum for various job classes. The system also collects and organizes employee performance information through a powerful relational database, which can generate a number of record-keeping and tracking reports... and has a database "import/export" feature, which allows information to be transferred to and from an external database (such as a company's personnel database). The course is one of over 100 titles currently available in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library.
