If you work around hazardous materials, HAZWOPER should be one of the most important words in your vocabulary. HAZWOPER stands for Hazardous Waste Operations & Emergency Response, and it is the OSHA regulation that helps protect you from, and minimize your exposure to, hazardous materials at work. This requires many safety procedures, including exposure monitoring and medical surveillance, the focus of this On Demand training lesson. This training video teaches workers how to understand terminology and how to best utilize such techniques to protect yourself from harm.

Exposure monitoring is concerned with the detection of any airborne contaminant present while you are at work. This is critical because these contaminants can pass easily into the bloodstream after they are inhaled, quickly creating a dangerous situation. Therefore, it is important to know the best practices for monitoring in order to lower any potential risks. There are a number of devices you can use for exposure monitoring; you will learn about these devices, as well as the distinct situations in which they are used, through the information given in this lesson.

Medical surveillance is also something important to those working with hazardous materials, as it calls for continually watching the health of anyone working with or near hazardous materials. Checking your health is necessary for remaining safe when working in these dangerous environments.

Both medical surveillance and exposure monitoring help catch any potential health hazards before they become serious. They can also determine what protective measures you need before, during, or after any exposure to hazardous materials. The material presented in this safety training video instructs you on the best monitoring and surveillance practices to keep yourself from harm, which is exceptionally important when working with hazardous materials.
