About Handling Hazardous Materials

Hazardous materials and wastes are a part of many work situations, and can be found in many types of facilities and on many job sites.

It is very important for employees to know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances, and how to use and dispose of them properly.

In 1976, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the handling of hazardous waste "from cradle to grave".

Since then, other regulations have followed... including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Interim Final Rule for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response ("HAZWOPER"), issued in 1986... which gave OSHA the task of protecting HAZMAT workers.

As part of these HAZWOPER regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training, depending on the employee's specific level of involvement with hazardous materials.

This program will help employees to understand nature and "behavior" of hazardous chemicals. But more importantly, the information provided in this training program will help employees to work safely around hazardous materials.
