HAZWOPER: Exposure Monitoring & Medical Surveillance

The HAZWOPER regulation from OSHA was created in order to protect you from, and minimize your exposure to, hazardous materials while you are working. The HAZWOPER standard contains many safety regulations, and this On Demand lesson focuses on two of them, exposure monitoring and medical surveillance. This video teaches the definitions of these terms, what they entail, and how to best utilize their practices to protect yourself while working.

Airborne contaminants are among the most dangerous materials you face while working with hazardous materials, as they can be easily absorbed into the bloodstream when inhaled. This is where exposure monitoring becomes important. Exposure monitoring is focused on the detection of airborne contaminants in order to lower any potential risks to those working around them. There are a number of devices used for this purpose, and each type may be used in a different situation. This training explains these devices, as well as how and when to use them.

You also need to know whether or not a person has become ill after working with hazardous materials. Checking one's health is key to remaining safe while on the job; this constant monitoring is the basis of medical surveillance.

Medical surveillance and exposure monitoring are critical in catching any health hazard before they become serious and life-threatening. They help protect you both during and after any potential exposure to hazardous materials, and they also help you determine what equipment you need to minimize your exposure. The material presented in this video instructs you on the best monitoring and surveillance practices to keep yourself from harm, which is exceptionally important when working with hazardous materials.
