Partially funded by a CARES Act grant, TMEP Safety consultants completed a 29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(i) compliant 24 HR HAZWOPER Emergency Response workshop for ten participants and conducted an OSHA Safety audit. The workshop was customized to emphasize response to ethyl alcohol-based incidents and fire protection and included lecture and hands-on demonstration with participants in “full dress-out" using personal protective equipment.
The safety consultants provided all class related AV materials, student handout materials, disposable PPE pertinent to the workshop and class related training equipment including, but not limited to respiratory protection equipment, chemical protective suits, chemical monitoring equipment, spill absorbents and pads, plugging/patching materials, decontamination equipment, and other training props. Employees trained as 24-hour emergency response technician gained the knowledge, skills, and capabilities to recognize and manage hazards in the workplace as well as the regulations in place which govern occupational health and safety. Employees also earned the OSHA 24-Hour Emergency Responder card.
TMEP safety consultants also completed a sixteen-hour onsite safety audit and provided advisement on improving the company’s current safety program. The audit covered several elements including a review of the current safety program and safety committee, a review of current safety reporting to TOSHA standards, and advisement on how to properly perform safety audits and write process safety instructions.
