Our OSHA Crude Oil Hazards Training course consists of content, graphics, and a final exam.
This course covers hazards posed by crude oil, relating to OSHA's Hazard Communication (HazCom) standard 29 CFR § 1910.1200. This course describes the standard, what types of hazards that chemicals pose, along with hazard controls that can be used to protect the health and safety of workers.
Specific topics covered in this course include:
- what crude oil is and what products are made from it,
- potential ways to be exposed,
- oil spills,
- routes of entry,
- health effects, and
- controls, including:
- engineering/technological solutions
- Hazard Communication
- work practices and training
- Personal Protective Equipment
OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Crude Oil Hazards. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:
(a) Each employer -
(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.
A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer's industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.
Therefore it is our recommendation that workers be retrained at least every three years.
Persons exposed to crude oil are most likely required by OSHA to receive additional training relevant to their specific exposure level with crude oil, e.g. Personal Protective Equipment, Hazard Communication, Heat Stress & Fatigue-related Hazards, Outdoor Biological Hazards and others.
