Does your job require you to be involved in emergency response to incidents where hazardous materials or chemicals are involved? If so, OSHA requires that you take one of five levels of training. At the First Responder Operations level, you take defensive actions to help limit the effects of a spill, such as operating remote valves or laying down barriers to prevent the material from entering storm drains. You do not contact the material.
This course discusses all of the concepts of response, safety, hazard and risk assessment, and actions that can be taken by those with this level of certification. Some jobs that frequently require this training are Police Officer, Firefighter, Paramedic, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Public Works employee, or facility Emergency Response Team members.
Please note that certain public service positions require certification to standards beyond OSHA. Examples are some jurisdictions requiring ProBoard accredited training or CSTI (California Specialized Training Institute) certification. This is frequently the case for firefighters and our course does not meet ProBoard or CSTI requirements, just OSHA’s. It’s best to check with your local training coordinator to determine your specific training needs in these cases.
The structure and objectives of this course are centered around the requirements outlined in the HAZWOPER regulation. Each unit is based on one or more of the following requirements.
Upon completion of this program, the participants will have demonstrated the following:
As a first responder you may be called upon by your employer for advice on handling a suspicious package or object. In this course you will learn about how to use SIN to deal with the situation.
