NSC’s “General Training 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 twelve courses provide the basis for the training required by OSHA for HAZMAT employees who are unlikely to be exposed to hazards in excess of permissible exposure limits, and includes “Understanding HAZWOPER”, “Work Practices and Engineering Controls”, “Understanding Chemical Hazards”, “Personal Protective Equipment”, “HAZMAT Labeling”, “Confined Space Entry”, “Handling Hazardous Materials”, “The Emergency Response Plan”, “Monitoring Procedures and Equipment”, “Decontamination Procedures”, “Medical Surveillance Programs”, “Accidental Release Measures and Spill Cleanup 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.
