Overview

This course is an exploration of effectively planning the response to a hazmat emergency situation. As each situation is different, one approach does work for all situations.

This course begins by discussing the importance of risk-based response and systematically analyzing the problem, gathering information, assessing the hazards and any potential consequences and the outcome of the response. It then talks about the role of the incident commander, identifying a course of action based on what is at the disposal of the team immediately after the emergency happens, rescue and recovery, the importance of protecting the public, differentiating between contamination and exposure, and the procedure for decontamination.

A hazmat situation can be an extremely frightening circumstance, but with the proper knowledge and training serious injury and death can be prevented. Use this course among your employees in order to foster a mutual understanding of planning a response to a hazmat situation.
