Operations Level 1

This level training is designed for all employees who respond to a hazardous materials emergency. OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 indicates that all employees who respond to a hazardous materials emergency must receive training based on their level of activities at the incident. Awareness level training is for responders who are likely to witness or discover a hazardous materials release and will initiate a response sequence by notifying the proper authorities of the release.

Topics of the course include defining hazardous materials, recognizing and identifying the presence of hazardous materials in an emergency, potential outcomes when hazardous materials are involved, use of basic information resources, and individual roles in an emergency situation. Awareness level responders recognize the presence of hazardous materials, isolate the scene and call for appropriate assistance. They do not participate in actual cleanup activities. The course covers the topics addressed in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120.
