Course Description

Course Description

MARCOM's interactive course on Dealing with Hazardous Spills helps workers understand the hazards that can be associated with HAZMATs and the cleanup procedures that can mitigate them. Hazardous materials in the workplace usually aren't a problem when they're handled carefully. But accidents can and do happen. When a spill occurs, serious damage can be prevented if employees have been trained on how to respond to them safely and effectively.

Areas covered in the course include information on HAZMAT basics and the Emergency Action Plan, the spill response team, the first steps in responding to a spill, characterizing a spill and cleaning it up, special hazards associated with a HAZMAT spill cleanup, decontamination and waste disposal, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.
