HAZWOPER: Safety Data Sheets in HAZWOPER Interactive Training

Atlantic's The GHS Safety Data Sheets in HAZWOPER Environments video Program assists facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), and helps instruct employees about the GHS SDS format and reviews how the information in an SDS can help them work safely with potentially hazardous chemicals. 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 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. Areas covered in the program include the importance of the MSDS, the MSDS's role in the Hazard Communication Standard, advantages of the ANSI Format, the four basic questions that the ANSI MSDS answers, a review of the sections in the ANSI Material Safety Data Sheet, and more.
