This course will take approximately 23 minutes to complete. OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard requires that you provide a hazard communication program that meets the requirements of the HazCom standard, identifies all chemical hazards in the workplace, trains employees to recognize hazards and take proper precautions, ensures proper labeling of chemical containers and provides required material safety data sheets, and establishes effective emergency response procedures.
This course will take approximately 26 minutes to complete. OSHA's HazCom Standard for material safety data sheets requires that you provide an MSDS program that includes an accessible, backed up MSDS system, MSDS updates and retention procedures, employee training, and compliance with OSHA's HazCom Standard.
This course will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. This presentation is focused on the hazards of organic solvents, which are a dangerous group of solvents that can be hazardous to your skin and other organs of your body.
This course will take approximately 26 minutes to complete. Although pesticides are an essential part of modern agriculture, they can also be hazardous unless they are used properly. If you handle pesticides on the job or work in areas where pesticides are used, you need to know the precautions you must take to protect your health and safety.
This course will take approximately 29 minutes to complete. Corrosives are hazardous materials that can cause serious health problems if you fail to take proper precautions. All corrosives share a common chemical property—they degrade other materials due to their aggressive nature. To prevent accidents and injuries, this training session shows employees know how to work safely with corrosives.
This course will take approximately 27 minutes to complete. This presentation covers the employee training requirements for large and small quantity handlers of universal wastes. It does not address all the requirements for universal waste transporters or destination facilities.
In this session, you will learn about what conservation is and about sustainability; what a “real” paperless office is—fact or fiction; the environmental costs of paper production and waste; the economic costs of waste paper; and, we will share some “best practices” to save you paper, ink, and money. Duration: 16 minutes.
This course will take approximately 22 minutes to complete. Stormwater runoff is a major carrier of pollutants that damage rivers, lakes, streams, and coastal waters in the United States. To address this problem, the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed a federal program under the Clean Water Act to regulate stormwater discharge sources. This session will help identify the sources of pollutants in stormwater runoff and implement procedures to prevent pollutants from getting into stormwater or the environment.
In this session, you’ll learn about key terms, such as “conservation” and “sustainability”; energy conservation and why it is important; facts about energy use including that energy use is not just use of electricity; costs of using and wasting energy; and tips, strategies, and opportunities for saving energy. Duration: 22 minutes.
This course will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. We use many different chemicals in the workplace, but often these materials can be hazardous to health and safety unless we take proper precautions when handling them. This session will discuss the steps you can take to handle the materials you work with safely so that you can prevent accidents, injuries, and illness.
This course will take approximately 14 minutes to complete. This session will discuss the prevention and control of oil spills, and measures to prevent oil from getting near water, including groundwater. Facilities are required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to develop a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures Plan—or SPCC Plan. We’ll review the SPCC Plan and policies for preventing and controlling spills.
The main objective of this session is to give you an overview of water uses and water pollution. By the end of the session, you should understand the meaning of conservation and sustainability, water conservation, some facts about water use and pollution, the environmental and economic costs of water use and pollution, and useful tips, strategies, and opportunities to improve water use. Duratation: 15 minutes
This course will take approximately 23 minutes to complete. Chemical reactions can be extremely hazardous if they are not thoroughly understood and controlled. When intentional or unintentional reactions get out of control, they can result in fires, explosions, or releases of toxic fumes or gases. This session shows how to safely manage reactive chemicals to prevent accidents.
This course will take approximately 22 minutes to complete. Any generator who offers hazardous wastes for transportation for off-site treatment, storage, or disposal must prepare a manifest using a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (federal form 8700-22). Anyone responsible for signing a manifest or for completing any part of this specialized shipping paper should receive training in completion of the manifest. This training session will show you how to properly complete a manifest.
This course will take approximately 23 minutes to complete. This slide show will focus on emergency response procedures required under EPA Regulation 40 CFR 265.16 and 40 CFR 262.34(a)(4) for personnel at large quantity generators (LQGs) and hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). The slideshow also applies to small quantity generators (SQGs), though SQGs are not required to have formal written training programs for their employees.
