Industrial hygiene has been defined as… “The science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace, which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being or significant discomfort among workers or the citizens of the community.” Quite a mouthful. So what does that all mean? And what does an Industrial Hygienist actually do?

MARCOM’s new course, “Introduction to Industrial Hygiene”, discusses how Industrial Hygienist’s look at the work environment, identify problems that could affect workers’ safety and health, and find ways to eliminate or alleviate those problems.

MARCOM has released the new COVID-19 in Healthcare Environments (OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard) course in English!

Although the Coronavirus surfaced in the U.S. in early 2020, it feels like we’ve been living with it forever… in our workplaces, homes and communities as well as in the media and on the internet. Millions of people in the U.S. have contracted the virus. Hundreds of thousands have died. And thousands of others are experiencing long-term health effects from the virus.

The Coronavirus is a serious disease, and healthcare workers are one of the groups that have the highest risk of infection. As a result, OSHA has created an “Emergency Temporary Standard” for healthcare facilities. MARCOM’s new course, COVID-19 in Healthcare Environments (OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard), discusses the requirements in the Standard, the latest in vaccine mandates, and how you can guard against infection.

MARCOM has released the Spanish versions of the recently updated Electrocution Hazard courses:

"Electrocution Hazards Part I: Worksite Safety"
"Electrocution Hazards Part II: Employer Responsibilities"

More than a hundred construction workers are killed by electricity each year, making "electrocution hazards" the fourth leading cause of death in the construction industry.
Workers are required to receive training on the electrical hazards that they can encounter on a job site, and their employer's responsibilities for providing protection from those hazards.

Now available in both Spanish and English, MARCOM’s courses discuss the hazards of electricity, the federal standards that have been established to protect you from those hazards, and what you can do to work more safely with electricity.

MARCOM is pleased to announce the release of two updated Spanish courses:

“Hazardous Materials Labels” and “Safety Showers and Eye Washes”

We’ve all heard the phrase “accidents happen”. But when it comes to hazardous materials, accidental spills can cause severe injuries such as burns and blindness…even death. To avoid this, hazardous materials must be washed off as quickly as possible. With MARCOM’s updated course on “Safety Showers and Eye Washes” employees will learn how safety showers and eye washes work, and how to use them effectively if there is a HAZMAT exposure on the job.

Hazardous substances can pose a serious threat to both our surroundings and our health. They have the ability to burn and eat away at materials, and when they come into contact with the human body they can cause healthy cells to turn cancerous and toxins to build up in the blood. MARCOM’s updated course on “Hazardous Materials Labels” teaches employees how to avoid potentially life-threatening accidents by discussing the most commonly used HAZMAT labeling systems, and how to use those labels to handle hazardous materials safely.

MARCOM has released the updated Spanish versions of the following Hazard Communication courses:


“Hazard Communication in Industrial Environments”
“Hazard Communication in Construction Environments”
“Hazard Communication in Auto Service Environments”
“Hazard Communication in Hospitality Environments”
“Hazard Communication in Healthcare Environments”
“Hazard Communication in Cleaning and Maintenance Environments”


Hazardous materials can be found in a lot of workplaces, doing a lot of good things. They heat our facilities, help us to maintain our tools and equipment and play major roles in many other processes. But these “HAZMATs” can also create serious hazards for us…especially if they aren’t handled safely.


MARCOM’s industry specific courses on Hazard Communication discuss the requirements of the HAZCOM Standard, the hazards that are associated with different types of HAZMATs, and what you can do to avoid those hazards.

We hear about it almost every day: somewhere something bad has happened in a workplace.
