The nature of handling hazardous materials or waste makes accidents a continual possibility, no matter how infrequently they may actually occur. They happen quickly, unexpectedly, and require immediate response. This class will provide participants with the resources to train your employees or clients in responding to these unexpected situations.
It’s critical that employees understand the risks of the hazardous materials they work with. These risks can be reduced and even eliminated through the use of appropriate preparation techniques. These techniques, coupled with a proper understanding of emergency response techniques and how to work with Emergency Responders can limit the negative impact of a hazmat incident. This class will introduce attendees to the 2020 ERG, GHS compliant Safety Data Sheets, HAZMAT terminology, proper selection and use of PPE and various Apps. Combining everything mentioned above so that you can train your employees or clients and develop your own site specific safety protocols for your organization.

This what you’ll learn:
HAZMAT emergency preparation and response can be a fast and fluid challenge. During this three-day train-the-trainer class, we will start with the basics including HAZMAT terminology, proper selection, and use of PPE, all with the goal to enable students to teach others. What is involved in writing plans, fit testing respirators, or selecting the right level of protection? Bring your cameras and get out of your seats as this will be a fun, interactive, hands-on class. DOT requires that those who handle, package, and transport Hazardous Materials can explain potential problems to First Responders with a goal of limiting the emergency event. Join us for this class and we’ll teach you how to do that and much more!”
