Personal Protective Equipment & Decontamination Procedures 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 course… part of the HAZWOPER Annual Retraining Series… instructs employees on the appropriate use of personal protective equipment (such as chemical protective clothing) as well as how to remove contaminants that accumulate on clothing and equipment. 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.
