Course Description

Atlantic's Exposure Monitoring and Medical Surveillance HAZWOPER video Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and discusses various types of exposure monitoring equipment and techniques. The program also explains medical surveillance and how it is used to evaluate the health of anyone who regularly works around hazardous materials. 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. 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.

Topics covered in the products include:

  • Direct-reading instruments.
  • Sampling collection devices.
  • Site characterization.
  • General on-site monitoring.
  • Perimeter monitoring and personal monitoring.
  • Medical surveillance programs.
  • Medical examinations and written medical opinions.
  • and more.
