They assume a more aggressive role than a first responder at the operations level in that they will approach the point of the release in order to plug, patch, or otherwise stop, contain the release of the hazardous substance. The course covers: implementation of the employers emergency response plan, classification and identification of unknown materials using field survey instruments, functioning within the Incident Command System, selection and use of specialized chemical protective equipment, hazard and risk assessment techniques, performing advanced product control operations, implementation of decontamination procedures, understanding proper termination procedures, and understanding basic chemical and toxicological terminology. This course meets or exceeds the requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120(q) for HAZWOPER Training. It is intended for government, industrial and private response teams, who in their normal course of duty would be responsible for responding to a Haz mat release.
