First Responder Operations
This specialized course is designed to train employees to respond to Hazardous Material incidents within their facility, as described in Cal-OSHA, Title 8 CCR 5192.
This 16 hour course trains first responders at the operations level to respond to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances as part of an initial response. Course participants will learn how to protect nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of a hazmat release by responding in a defensive fashion without trying to stop the release. This course will train personnel to contain the release from a safe distance, keeping it from spreading and preventing exposures.
