RMEC 902 - Industrial Emergency Response: Hazardous Materials Technician - Level 3 (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 technician-level responder performs in an offensive manner, making direct contact with the substance in order to plug, patch or otherwise stop the release of the hazardous substance. This level of training is directed at the Hazardous Materials Team member or those responders who will be required to take aggressive actions to mitigate a hazardous materials emergency. The OSHA standard requires a minimum of 24 hours of training at this level. Topics include regulatory overview, basic chemistry and toxicology, medical monitoring, hazardous materials recognition and identification, hazard and risk assessment, use of detection devices, personal protective equipment, heat stress, spill control techniques, decontamination, scene management, and incident command overview. This class includes 16 hours of lecture and eight hours of hands-on training. Suggested prerequisites: Awareness Level 1 and Operations Level 2 training or equivalent.

This Class can be taught at your facility.  We suggest a minimum of 12 students to make it cost effective for you, however we are happy to provide you a bid for fewer than 12. Click Here to request a quote
