The health and safety of workers including those cleaning up the BP oil spill is of top priority to Cell Podium and our clients, including the Worker Education and Training Program (WETP) of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences http://www.niehs.nih.gov/careers/hazmat/, and the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention http://emergency.cdc.gov/cdcpreparedness/index.asp.
Among the efforts to protect these workers and the public that risk exposure to oil contamination is the offering of mobile-accessible oil spill response training. Cell Podium has developed six just-in-time training videos from the WETP Oil Spill Response Training Tool that give crucial and imperative safety training within one minute for each topic:
- Heat Stress
- Protect Yourself
- Level D PPE
These videos are available in English and Spanish and are currently poster for free through our YouTube page, http://youtube.com/user/cellpodium, as an opportunity for additional training for workers in the field, especially those with limited experience with chemicals.
