Decontamination Procedures is designed to help facilities comply with OSHA’s HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120). As part of these regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training, depending on an employee’s specific level of involvement with hazardous materials. The course helps employees understand 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. It is so important that employees know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances, as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly, that OSHA mandates that anyone working with these substances receive comprehensive training in this area.
Topics covered in this program:
Include work practices, engineering controls, personal protective equipment, the exclusion zone, the contamination reduction zone, the contamination reduction corridor, decontamination equipment and solutions, decontamination procedures, and more.
