HazMat Incident Command System Training

HazMat Incident Command System

A quick, systematic response to a hazardous material release is not only a good idea, but also a requirement under OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120. OSHA requires supervisors who are expected to organize and manage a team responding to a Hazardous Materials release to complete a minimum of 8 hours of Incident Management Training. We address HazMat, Medical, Fire, Explosion and Security issues in our computer-generated and videobased tabletop scenarios.

Our specialists incorporate your site’s Emergency Response Plan with likely spill scenarios to provide site-specific training for your management staff. While the training is primarily designed for chemical spills, this management system will apply to all emergency situations and potential hazards. In addition to managing onsite activities, the training also highlights the role of Local, State and Federal First Responders according to the National Incident Management System.

Our Incident Command System for Management is an 8-hour class.
