This week, the Safety Daily Advisor talked about the hazardous waste decontamination process; gave tips for eye safety; and discussed the most common barriers to training transfer.

Hazardous waste: Permeation factors and decontamination methodsDecontamination is a vital process for employees who handle hazardous wastes because it removes or neutralizes contaminants that have accumulated on personnel and equipment.

Steps in the hazardous waste decontamination processThe steps in the hazardous decontamination process vary depending on the hazards involved, the equipment available, and the terrain and circumstances. However, this list is typical of what would be set up for a complex decontamination.

What workers need to know about eyewashes and safety showersWhen a worker gets hazardous substances in the eyes or on the skin, seconds count. Make sure your workers can get to an eyewash station or safety shower quickly and know how to use it properly.
