Upcoming In-Person Trainings
April – July 2018
The 24-Hour course consists of three days of lectures, discussions, classroom demonstrations, small group exercises, and hands-on training. This Operations Level course is designed to provide training required by OSHA 1910.120 to respond to hazardous substance releases with the purpose of protecting persons, property, and the environment from the effects of the release and to contain the release. Emphasis will be placed on responding in a defensive manner without actually trying to stop the release.
Topics include: relevant state and federal regulations, health hazard recognition, hazard and risk assessment, respiratory protection, selection and use of personal protective equipment, decontamination, control and containment of spills, emergency response plans, termination procedures, and the incident command system.
This course offers 24 Continuing Education Hours.
NOTE: All participants in the 24-hour course are required to have a physician complete a medical evaluation and clearance form prior to the course.
NOTE: This course will be held at Red Wing Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Red Wing, MN.
This program is geared toward emergency receivers, safety and maintenance personnel at hospitals and health care facilities. Included is a review of the Incident Command System, Personal Protective Equipment, how to select the right PPE, and how to put it on and take it off properly. A review of decontamination shelters and procedures, and hands on simulation ties the day together.
