Awareness Level Training for First Receivers

This course provides training as required by OSHA's HAZWOPER Standard (29CFR 1910.120) for First Responder Awareness Level. First receivers are a division of first responders, and are those healthcare workers that are based away from a hazardous substance release, but are at risk when a hospital receives contaminated (chemical, biological, or radiological) patients. Although the OSHA standard was written for the First Responder, there are a series of interpretation letters to translate the HAZWOPER Standard into one that is appropriate for First Receivers.

Material covered in the course includes definitions of Awareness Level training, hazardous substances and their risks, decontamination procedures, and other information needed to fulfill responsibilities as a hospital-based First Receiver trained at the Awareness level.

Bloodborne Pathogens

This course provides training as required by OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29CFR 1910.1030). Material covered in the course includes definitions of bloodborne pathogens, modes of transmission, universal precautions, engineering and work practice controls, exposure control plans, hepatitis B vaccinations, and other information needed to ensure worker safety.

This course can be used as introductory training as well as satisfy OSHA's annual refresher requirement.

Note that the standard requires an opportunity for you to ask interactive questions and receive answers from the person conducting the training session. OSHA was asked if having a trainer available to answer any questions via email was considered to be in compliance with this requirement. In an interpretation letter OSHA states that "it is critical that trainees have an opportunity to ask and receive answers to questions where material is unfamiliar to them. Frequently, a trainee may be unable to go further with the training or to understand related training content until a response is received." Therefore, it is OSHA's policy that using an email system to answer questions is NOT considered direct access to a qualified trainer. If the qualified trainer is available through an interactive on-line exchange or via phone communication whenever a question arises, this is considered acceptable.

This training course complies with the requirement by having an online chat (AOL screen name: eduwhere) available at 9 am -11 am (Eastern Time) every Wednesday and a toll free number to call if you have questions (866-523-9108).

EPA Method 1: Isokinetic Air Emission Testing

Isokinetic air emission sampling has been employed since the 1950’s to measure air pollutants such as particulate matter, aerosols, dusts, mists and smoke in flue gases from stack and ducts. EPA Methods 1-4 provide all the necessary data to perform any of the isokinetic sampling methods published by the Environmental Protection Agency and other isokinetic methods developed by other institutions. Each isokinetic method is specific to the target pollutant with variations to the sampling train to accommodate the target pollutant. The equations, techniques, and skills are universal in the operation of isokinetic sampling. EPA Method 2 is for the determination of the average velocity and volumetric flow rate of a gas stream. This method employs the principals of EPA Method 1 in selecting an appropriate measurement location and determining the minimum number of measurement points to provide reliable velocity and volumetric flow rate determination. Some material of Method 2 is incorporated by reference from other methods. To obtain reliable results, persons using this method should have a thorough knowledge of at least Method 1.

EPA Method 2: Isokinetic Air Emission Testing

EPA Method 2 is for the determination of the average velocity and volumetric flow rate of a gas stream. This method employs the principals of EPA Method 1 in selecting an appropriate measurement location and determining the minimum number of measurement points to provide reliable velocity and volumetric flow rate determination. This method is not suitable for cyclonic or swirling gas streams as identified in EPA Method 1.

Determining the flue gas velocity and volumetric flow rate are necessary components to determine isokinetic sample rates and also to determine mass emission rates of air pollutant emissions from regulated sources. The measured velocity and calculated volumetric flow rate are also useful tools when designing and sizing control devices, as well as performing engineering studies.

Having an understanding of the purpose and motives establishes a base to comprehend the why and what’s of the procedures in the EPA Method 2. The desired objective is to relate the knowledge of the method to practical application in actual measurements. Initial discussion in this lesson will provide background information for EPA Method 2. The balance of the discussion is a step by step field procedures to be performed in actual application.

Some material of Method 2 is incorporated by reference from other methods. To obtain reliable results, persons using this method should have a thorough knowledge of at least Method 1. Method 2 is not applicable at measurement sites that fail to meet the criteria of Method 1. EPA Method 2 can be utilized for most gas flue streams. Experienced individuals can apply the knowledge and experience of this method to other reference methods such as EPA Method 2A, 2C, 2D, 2F, 2G, and 2H.

Fire Safety

This course is intended as an overview of fire safety, including emergency action plans and fire extinguishers.

In 2007, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reported that there were 1,557,500 fires in the US, causing 3,430 civilian deaths and $14.6 billion in property damage. In addition, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2007, an estimated 151 people lost their lives on the job due to fire related incidents. Nearly every year, there are large and deadly incidents involving fire.

An emergency action plan (EAP) is a written document required by particular OSHA standards 29 CFR 1910.38(a). The purpose of an EAP is to facilitate and organize employer and employee actions during workplace emergencies. Well developed emergency plans and proper employee training (such that employees understand their roles and responsibilities within the plan) will result in fewer and less severe employee injuries and less structural damage to the facility during emergencies.

The course also covers OSHA 29 CFR 1910.157(g) requirements related to the understanding of portable fire extinguishers, including inspection, maintenance, testing, and use.

Hazard Communication Standard with GHS Additions - Employee Training

To protect workers exposed to hazardous chemicals in all industrial sectors, the Federal Government established the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom) 1910.1200, also known as the "right to know" law. This standard was based on a simple concept: employees have both a need and a right to know the hazards and the identities of the chemicals they are exposed to when working. In 2012 OSHA revised this standard such that it not only gave workers the right to know, but now it gives them the right to understand. This course is designed to assist employees in learning about work hazards, how to protect themselves, and include the revisions that align with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) published in the Federal Register in March 2012 (77 FR 17574).

Whether you are a miner or an independent contractor, there are sections within the Part 46 training that must address issues of your specific operation. This course offers special instruction that will help you do that as well as provide training for the more generic MSHA recommended topics. In addition, it will help you accomplish your ultimate goal beyond MSHA compliance: to keep you safe in mine work areas.

You should be aware of what regulations cover your activity at the mine. There may be additional training requirements or stipulations not covered here.

You must have a copy of your company's training plan or know the time constraints for each topic of study and be sure your study meets the minimum hours outlined in your particular plan. Note that while this course covers the majority of subjects recommended for the refresher training, you must also fulfill some of the training requirements outside the scope of this course. For example, the regulations (46.8(b)) require a review of your site-specific hazards. The total time of study spent on the refresher must be a minimum of eight hours.

The course design here closely matches the template for Part 46 training provided by MSHA. When completed, your training will need to be certified by the person in your company responsible for mine safety and health training.

Toxicology: An Introduction

This course is presented as an introduction to the field of toxicology. It is aimed at a wide audience, including scientists, engineers, environmental technicians, pesticide applicators, regulators, and anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of the effects of chemicals to human beings.

There is increasing public concern over protecting human and environmental health from the potentially harmful effects of the intended and unintended release of chemicals. Unfortunately, the public has a poor understanding of the basic principles underlying the risk of chemicals to human and environmental health. This has led to much misinformation and misunderstanding about the risk of chemicals in the environment.

Agricultural and environmental research has done much to provide a scientific basis for assessing the risks of pesticides, but what remains is the challenge of disseminating the current knowledge to people working in areas other than university research, including pesticide applicators, and state regulators among others. These people perform an important role in transferring the technical knowledge obtained from university research to the public and in addressing the public concern over environmental pollution and human health.

In this sense, education in the area of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry is important in understanding of the sources, fate, and effects of chemicals in the environment. The subjects are based on principles often poorly understood, or misunderstood, even by some of those who must apply them. People who are responsible for investigating, assessing, and solving these problems, and even those who are just interested in these problems, need to share a common base of fundamentals and their applications. This course module is the first step to understanding these critical issues.

Toxicology: Pesticides

There is increasing public concern over protecting human and environmental health from the potentially harmful effects of the intended and unintended release of chemicals.
