This training identifies the hazards of acids and safe response to incidents involving acids. Corrosives have a destructive and irreversible effect on tissue. The program provides important safety information for workers who use, store or transport sulfuric or hydrochloric acid, as well as for emergency response personnel who might respond to an incident involving corrosives. Workers discover how to identify corrosive acids and learn about reactivity issues; neutralization operations; emergency medical operations; steps to take in an uncontrolled leak, spill, or fire; diking to control runoff; vapor control; and decontamination.
