The decontamination of Hazardous Materials process is accomplished by removal of hazardous agents by physical means by chemical neutralization or detoxification. Decontamination reduces or eliminates potential exposure to in their work environments. The nature of the original material determines the means of the removal. Some jobs require a decontamination procedure continuously, while other are only required if an accidental spill or leak occurs. Compliance and Safety offers HAZWOPER: Decontamination Procedures training programs designed to help any company and its employees understand and comply with the regulation in an easy, cost efficient manner. Topics covered in these products include: Work practices, Engineering controls, Selecting and using the appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE), The exclusion zone, The contamination reduction zone, The contamination reduction corridor, Decontamination equipment and solutions, Decontamination procedures, and more.
OSHA's Position On Decontamination Procedures Training
OSHA understands the need for the standardization of decontamination procedures in order to ensure that leftover hazardous material particles are no longer present. Because of this, OSHA has created a number of mandatory procedures that need to be followed in a decontamination process. Each of these procedures is specific to the type of materials that are being addressed. In order to comply with OSHA’s mandatory regulations regarding hazardous waste operations and emergency response (OSHA 1910.120), we have compiled training materials that completely cover these mandates. The topics that are covered in our DVD training videos include:
- Correct work practices when dealing with hazardous materials
- Applicable engineering controls (HAZWOPER (e)(2)(v))
- HAZMAT Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) (OSHA 1910.132)
- Setting up an “exclusion zone”
- Decontamination Plan Requirement (OSHA 1910.120)
- Correct decontamination procedures
- And many other topics.
In addition to our DVD training videos, we also provide additional training tools that include; CD-ROM Format Decontamination Courses and other training materials that come bundled with many of our video training packages.
It should be understood that there are specific training requirements that are assigned to different levels of employee roles in the decontamination procedures. An example of this would be the HAZWOPER 40-hour (classroom) training requirement for a Hazardous Waste General Site Worker (OSHA 1910.120(e)(3)(i)) But, in any case, all employees that are working in facilities that use or store hazardous materials must receive an appropriate amount of training specified by federal regulations.
