15-Hr Disaster Site Worker

ID : 698   
« back to classes page
This training program is for Disaster Site Workers who provide, or may provide, skilled support services (e.g. utility, demolition, debris removal, hazardous materials response, or heavy equipment operation) or site clean-up services in response to natural and manmade disasters. Specifically, it is recognized that all workers at disaster sites need to be aware of the differences between disaster sites and regular construction or demolition worksites and be able to inspect, don, and doff air-purifying respirators. Also, the program will provide awareness to management and labor that pre-incident training is essential for ensuring disaster site workers' safety and health. Workers, supervisors, and managers tasked with providing support to first responders and cleanup operations need training and access to information that is timely and relevant in order to facilitate a safe and efficient disaster response operation. Covered topics include Incident Command System/Unified Command System, safety hazards, health hazards, CBRNE, traumatic incident stress awareness, respiratory protection, other personal protective equipment, decontamination, and a final exercise.
* Pre-requisite: Completion of the 10-hour or 30-hour OSHA Construction or General Industry Outreach Training. OSHA's Disaster Site Worker courses do not cover in detail the safety and health hazards that occur on a daily basis on a normal worksite.
