Who Should Attend:
This is required training for first responders who are likely to witness or discover a hazardous substance release and need to initiate an emergency response sequence by notifying the proper people; it is also for individuals who respond to releases of hazardous substances as part of the initial response for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of the release.
Environmental Task Force Meeting, September 1, 2020
SPCC Plan Development for Utility Personnel, September 3, 2020
A part of NWPPA's Environmental Series, and designed for the needs of electric utilities, this course will refresh your knowledge and understanding of the requirements for hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER) as required by 29 CFR 1910.120. This course, which also helps satisfy the annual HAZWOPER training required for recertification, trains operations-level responders to take defensive actions to a hazardous materials spill. It focuses on activities not intended to stop the release, such as hazard assessment; selecting and using protective equipment; implementing the facility emergency response plan; and setting up decontamination.
