HAZWOPER: Dealing With The Media In Emergency Situations
Program length: 14:00

Hazardous materials and waste are part of many work situations, and can be found on many types of job sites. OSHA feels that it is so important for employees to know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances (as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly) they have mandated that anyone working with these materials receive comprehensive training in this area.

In 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) to regulate the handling of hazardous waste "from cradle to grave". Since then other regulations have followed, including OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.120, also known as HAZWOPER. As part of these regulations, there are varying requirements for employee training, depending on an employee's specific level of involvement with hazardous materials.

HAZWOPER: Dealing with the Media in Emergency Situations helps employees understand the importance of building a good relationship with the media and shows how to deal with the media during an emergency situation.

Topics covered in HAZWOPER: Dealing with the Media in Emergency Situations include:

  • Establishing a relationship with the media before a crisis occurs.
  • The duties and responsibilities of the Public Information Officer (PIO).
  • Early response to the media during an incident.
  • Insuring the safety of the media.
  • Unauthorized communication with the media.
  • The consequences of rumors and misinformation.
