HAZWOPER: Electrical Safety in HAZMAT Environments
Hazardous materials and waste are a part of many work situations and can be found in many types of facilities and job sites. It is very important for your employees to know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances, and how to handle and dispose of them properly. As part of OSHA's 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 understand the electrical hazards presented during HAZMAT operations, and the engineering controls and work practices that should be used to minimize them. Topics include:
- The hazards of arc, sparks, and high temperatures
- The hazards and controls for the three NEC HAZMAT classes
- Purging and inerting Class I environments
- Responding to electrical accidents
