NSC’s “Annual Eight-Hour Refresher 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 refresh their understanding of the HAZWOPER regulation, as well as the major areas covered by the regulation. The four interactive CD-ROMs in the series are used as the basis for the eight hours of annual retraining mandated by OSHA, and include “Introduction to HAZWOPER Retraining”, “Understanding Chemical Hazards”, “Personal Protective Equipment and Decontamination Procedures”, and “Exposure Monitoring and Medical Surveillance.” 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.
