RMEC 901 - Industrial Emergency Response: Hazardous Materials First Responder Operations - Level 2 (HAZMAT)

Occupational Health and Safety

OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.120 standard indicates that all employees who respond to a hazardous materials emergency must receive training based on their level of activities at the incident. The operations-level responder is defined as anybody who responds to a hazardous materials emergency for the purpose of protecting persons, property or the environment from the effects of the release. Operations-level responders perform in a defensive manner to contain the release from a safe distance, keep it from spreading, and prevent exposure. OSHA regulations require a minimum of eight hours of training at this level. Topics include hazardous materials terms, basic hazard and risk assessment techniques, use of personal protective equipment, basic control and containment activities, decontamination procedures, standard operating procedures, and termination procedures. Suggested prerequisites: Awareness Level 1 training or equivalent.
