Course Description

Course Description

MARCOM's interactive course on HAZMAT Labeling 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 helps employees understand different labeling systems and how to use these systems to reduce or eliminate potential exposure to hazardous materials in their work environments.

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.

Areas covered in the course include where hazardous materials labels are used, OSHA labeling requirements, common labeling systems, DOT “Hazard Class” labels and placards, the Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS), target organ information labels, the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) Labeling System, hazardous waste labels, 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. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood and retained.
