Título Health and safety training for underground storage tank removal
Información bibliográfica Dec. 1991, Vol.6, No.12, p.1015-1019. 39 ref.
Resumen A 40-hour training course for underground storage tank (UST) removal supervisors was developed, using as a foundation a 16-hour US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) training course for state UST inspectors and materials adapted for use in UST training. Respirator training, basic training in handling hazardous wastes, field exercises, and first aid/CPR training comprised the additional hours required to satisfy the 40-hour training requirement specified in US legislation. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has proposed rules requiring that workers receive training in an accredited programme for hazardous waste operations. The specific course content contains many topics of direct concern to UST operations, but others do not. It is recommended 1) that specialised training which recognises the specific hazards of UST removal should be made available for UST removal workers and 2) that this training should be available for accreditation under the OSHA proposals. A sample 40-hour curriculum is included.
