NSC’s “Complete 40 Hour HAZWOPER Series” Interactive CD-ROM Training Package 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 series provides employees with the information they need to understand the major areas covered by the regulation. The package of 20 courses provides the comprehensive information needed by employees who are exposed to hazardous substances as a routine part of their jobs, the people who supervise and manage them, and the HAZMAT Incident Commander, and includes “Understanding HAZWOPER”, “Understanding Chemical Hazards”, “The Emergency Response Plan”, “The Site Safety and Health Plan”, “HAZMAT Labeling”, “Confined Space Entry”, “Personal Protective Equipment”, “Medical Surveillance Programs”, “Monitoring Procedures and Equipment”, “Accidental Release Measures and Spill Cleanup Procedures”, “ANSI MSDS”, “Handling Hazardous Materials”, “Work Practices and Engineering Controls”, “Respiratory Protection”, “Fire Prevention”, “Dealing with the Media in Emergency Situations”, “Safety Orientation”, “Electrical Safety in HAZMAT Environments”, “Heat Stress”, and “Decontamination Procedures”. 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. 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.
