In 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the handling of hazardous waste from cradle to grave. 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 industrial workforce safety training, depending on an employee's specific level of involvement with hazardous materials.

TPC Training's online and safety video training on HAZWOPER: Respiratory Protection helps employees understand how the use of respiratory protection can help to reduce or eliminate potential exposure to hazardous materials in their work environments.

– Supplied Air Respirators (SARs).
– Self-Contained Breathing Apparatuses (SCBAs).
