The Hazardous Materials Safety Officer and Site Operations course is founded in the need to immerse the hazardous materials responder in the strategy, tactics, and safety officer operations at the scene of a HazMat incident. This course will prepare the hazardous materials responder to safely and effectively respond to an incident and perform the duties associated with the management and safety officer roles required by the Code of Federal Regulations and in accordance with the recommendations of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 472, Standard for Professional Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials Incidents.
29 CFR 1910.120 Hazardous Waste Operations for Emergency Response and NFPA 472, require the appointment of a separate safety officer for hazardous materials. This is quite commonly overlooked and the person assigned those responsibilities fails to grasp both the implications of those actions, and a true understanding of the role. Historically only available on a limited basis at a remote location, this course is available to all organizations, teams, and individuals who may be held accountable for the safe operations of a hazardous materials incident, and the safety of all persons affected by a response.
Exceeds the requirements contained in the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 472 standards for Safety Officer required at all hazardous materials incidents.
Fully prepares the participant to plan, implement, and demobilize the hazardous materials emergency response site exceeding 29 CFR 1910.120 Hazardous Waste Operations and NFPA 472, Professional Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials Incidents.
