Site Safety and Health Plan 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 summarizes the various aspects of the Plan which is used in a hazardous materials facility or operation, and how the Plan helps to protect the health of anyone who regularly works around hazardous materials.
Topics covered in this program:
Include Plan guidelines, medical surveillance, job hazard analysis, the five levels of training and responsibilities for HAZMAT emergency responders, site evaluation, personal protective equipment, spill cleanup procedures, decontamination, and more. 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.
