Hazmat Awareness Training

Part 6 of BC OHSR mandates employers to ensure that a worker who is at risk of exposure to hazardous materials is adequately instructed and trained.

HEAL has developed a number of training programs for workers who may come into contact with hazardous materials such as asbestos, silica and lead. Training topics include but are not limited to: 

- Health hazards of exposure (including signs and symptoms of related illness). 
- Operations and materials that can lead to hazmat exposures.
- Engineering controls and safe work practices used to protect workers.
- The importance of proper equipment controls and maintenance.
- Housekeeping procedures.
- Proper use of respirators and the respirator program.
- Personal hygiene procedures to reduce exposures.

As per OHSR 5.48 to 5.59, employers and owners are required to have exposure control plans for various hazardous materials that workers and members of the general public may come into contact with.

HEAL can also help you develop an exposure control plan for any hazardous materials identified in the workplace and provide worker training on its contents.
