1.  Arc Flash & Electrical Safety Webinar 

LIVE DATE: 09/19/16
IEPA#:10953
RENEWAL TRAINING CREDIT HOURS FOR WATER OPERATORS AND ENGINEERS 1 TOTAL HOURS 1
 
Presenter: Jay Smith, Executive Vice President Lewellyn Technology

Summary: The Safety and Emergency Planning Committee of the Illinois Section of AWWA has developed a series of webinars to aid Municipalities in developing and/or maintaining their own safety programs. These webinars will provide basic information for individuals to expand to be Municipality specific in order to meet regulatory requirements. Arc Flash & Electrical Safety is the next topic in the series.
Arc flash is a violent phenomenon where a flashover of an electric current leaves its intended path through the air from one conductor to another, or to the ground. Without proper training or PPE, serious injury or death can occur when an arc flash occurs.
This webinar will review: OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.331 through 1910.335 and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E; outline the requirements of establishing a written program; performing and arc hazard analysis, types of electrical hazards; arc flash warning labels; proper personal protective equipment, and employee training

2. Radium Handling Safety Webinar

LIVE DATE:09/26/16

IEPA#:10966

Summary: Addressing Worker Radiation Exposure at Drinking Water Treatment Facilities

In 2011, IEMA adopted an exemption from the radioactive material licensing requirements for those facilities in possession or producing water treatment residuals. The current exemption provided regulatory relief to facilities from the licensing and low‐level radioactive waste requirements, while ensuring disposal of radioactive waste did not adversely impact farmland and disposal facilities (i.e., it provided relief from undue financial burdens, while being protective of public health and safety and the environment).

Through working with facilities and the review of data collected, IEMA has identified drinking water treatment facilities that inadvertently concentrate radium in their backwash at higher concentrations than anticipated. This activity has resulted in many facilities possessing residuals over 200 picocuries per gram (pCi/g) of combined radium, and absent any training, monitoring, and proper protective measures has created a worker exposure pathway. This webinar will provided recommended guidance on mitigating worker exposure to radioactive material at these facilities.

3. Hazardous Material Communication Webinar 


LIVE DATE:10/03/16
IEPA#: 10953
IDEM#PWSG16-5930

 

RENEWAL TRAINING CREDIT HOURS FOR WATER OPERATORS AND ENGINEERS 1 TOTAL HOURS 1


Summary: The Safety and Emergency Planning Committee of the Illinois Section of AWWA has developed a series of webinars to aid Municipalities in developing and/or maintaining their own safety programs. These webinars will provide basic information for individuals to expand to be Municipality specific in order to meet regulatory requirements. Hazardous Material Communication or otherwise known as “Right to Know” is the next topic in the series.

Employees have the right to know what hazards and chemicals are in your workplace. Employers must provide employees with effective information and training concerning hazardous chemicals in their work areas at the time of the initial assignment and whenever a new chemical hazard is introduced in the work area. The information and training must be specific to the kinds of hazards in the workplace in and the particular protective equipment, control measures, and procedures that are necessary.

 

This webinar will review: OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.1200; outline the requirements of establishing a written program, new requirements of the Global Harmonized System (GHS), and employee training.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback
