Life after an OSHA Citation: Turning a Black Mark into a Better Workplace



OSHA citations happen: the agency conducted 35,000 inspections in 2015 and cited 65,000 violations for a range of common hazards. The facilities that come back strongest from a citation are the ones that go beyond hazard correction to establish a culture of safe work practices.

HAZWOPER: Dealing with the Media in Emergency Situations

Hazardous materials and waste are part of many work situations, and can be found on many types of job sites. OSHA feels that it is so important for maintenance employees to know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances (as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly) they have mandated that anyone working with these materials receive comprehensive training in this area.

TPC Training Systems is authorized by IACET to offer 0.1 CEUs for this program.

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 maintenance employee training, depending on an worker's specific level of involvement with hazardous materials.

TPC Training Systems' training products on "HAZWOPER: Dealing With The Media In Emergency Situations" help employees understand the importance of building a good relationship with the media and how to deal with the media during an emergency situation.

– Early response to the media during an incident.
– Insuring the safety of the media.
