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 training, depending on an employee's specific level of involvement with hazardous materials.
TPC Training Systems' online and safety video training products on HAZWOPER: Medical Surveillance Programs discuss various types of "medical surveillance" and how it is used to evaluate the health of anyone who regularly works around hazardous materials.
Topics covered in this industrial safety course include:– Definition of medical surveillance.
– Medical examinations.

– and more.
