HAZWOPER Operations

HAZWOPER Operations : 24.00 Hours

Course Description

This course is designed to train individuals who respond to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances as part of the initial response to the site for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of the release. They are trained to respond in a defensive fashion without actually trying to stop the release. Their function is to contain the release from a safe distance, keep it from spreading, and prevent exposures. The course covers: an understanding of Hazmat laws and regulations, basic hazard and risk assessment techniques, selection and proper use of personal protective equipment, understanding of basic hazmat terms, how to perform basic product control procedures, and implementing basic decontamination procedures.
