Safety Partners presents a half-day training that provides certification at the First Responder Awareness Level (FRAL), as specified in OSHA’s hazardous waste operations and emergency response standard, 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(i). This regulation is designed to help assure worker health and safety while performing work activities associated with hazardous waste, and for those responsible for recognizing hazardous material spills and releases and notifying the appropriate personnel during an emergency, regardless of the location of the hazard.
Individuals who are likely to witness or discover a hazardous substance release and who have been trained to initiate an emergency response sequence by notifying the proper authorities of the release. They would take no further action beyond notifying the authorities of the release.
Some job titles/department personnel that may require HAZWOPER FRAL training, depending on their level of response, may include, but are not limited to, lab and manufacturing personnel, DOT hazmat employees, warehouse staff, maintenance workers.
This course provides a regulatory review, discusses hazard and risk assessment, and provides spill response guidance that can be taken by those individuals with this level of certification. Interactive spill response scenarios allow participants to strategize response to potential incidents.
