Learn to eliminate or reduce your exposure to hazardous materials in confined spaces
HAZWOPER Confined Space Entry
- Heavy Equipment
In 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the handling of hazardous waste. Since then, other regulations have followed, including OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.120, also known as HAZWOPER. As part of these regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training depending on an employee’s specific level of involvement with hazardous materials. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text, and colorful graphics, HAZWOPER: Confined Space Entry provides cost-effective, easy-to-use training. It’s divided into topic-based lessons so information is easily understood and retained. The course discusses how to eliminate or reduce potential exposure to hazardous materials in confined space work environments. It meets the employee training requirements of OSHA’s HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120).
