Does your employer store or use hazardous chemicals?

May you need to clean up non-emergency hazardous material spills at your site?

Need to know what to do in an emergency?

This course fulfills your OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 First Responder Awareness (FRA) training requirements and certifies you to clean up non-emergency spills in your workplace.  Taking this course will also satisfy your OSHA First Responder Awareness annual refresher training requirement.  Upon successful completion, you will receive 0.6 CEUs and an OSHA First Responder Awareness with Spill Cleanup printable pdf certificate.


If your job requires you to be involved in emergency response to incidents where hazardous materials or chemicals may be involved?  Police Officers, Paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), and Public Works employees, Security Officers and Emergency Response Team (ERT) Members all benefit from or require OSHA Emergency Response Training.  If your work duties may require you to respond to the release of a hazardous material, OSHA requires that you take one of five levels of training. The First Responder Awareness (FRA) course is the most basic OSHA Emergency Response training level.  Persons requiring FRA certification work in positions that may require them to respond to a release of a hazardous material, recognize the situation as one requiring specialized assistance, and notify the proper authorities.

If your site regularly experiences or has the potential to experience non-emergency hazardous material spills, this course will provide you with the necessary knowledge, tools and training to address these spills in a hands-on manner.

A certificate documenting compliance with the OSHA requirement is presented upon completion. For those who are already certified to the FRA level, this course would satisfy the requirement for your annual refresher course.

“Convenient, timely, and informative.  I’ve used your program for years. I plan on continuing usage for as long as I need retraining.” – David, CA
