This program offers both our HazMat Operations Refresher and Confined Space Rescue Awareness programs in one day. The HazMat Operations Refresher component is based on NFPA 472 Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents, and is designed to enable agencies to comply with OSHA and EPA regulations that require annual hazardous materials refresher training. Course content includes mission-specific competencies for performing air monitoring.
The Confined Space Rescue Awareness component will teach emergency responders how to perform a size-up of confined space rescue incidents, so a safe and effective initial response can be implemented. Students will implement scene management strategies and learn how to recognize and mitigate hazards associated with confined spaces, chief of which are atmospheric hazards.
