HAZWOPER TRAINING TOPICS TO MEET SPECIFIC NEEDS OR TO VARY YOUR REFRESHER TRAINING
Cryogens One of the most common hazard classes used and transported, but few HAZ MAT Teams fully understand their hazards and the way in which they can drastically change your basic operations. ·Cryogens demonstrations ·Case studies ·Response guidance ·Container design ·4 hours
Unstable and Reactive Chemicalsflammable solids, pyrophorics, polymers, hypergolics, oxidizers, organic peroxides-learn what they are and how to assess reactive chemical hazards. Case studies and demonstrations!
Speaking of Leaking innovative approaches to pressurized and non-pressurized leak control.Solutions to plug and patch compatibility issues.Low cost/no cost fixes using non-traditional HAZ MAT tools.Learn the 3-Cs: contain, confine and cut-it-off and the advantages of each.Looking for new ideas that are both effective and inexpensive?
HAZ MATCH®Our system for detecting and identifying the hazardous characteristics of unknown chemicals.This simplified hazard characterization protocol will aid HAZ MAT technicians by identifying the hazardous properties of unknown chemicals.This information is critical to proper response, handling and disposal of unknowns.One HAZ MATCH kit included with the class. Eight hours.
Emergency Room and On-scene Care for Chemically Contaminated Patients Who should be responsible for patient decon?How technical does it have to be?How should a hospital ER be equipped to handle a contaminated patient?Should a Haz Mat Team respond to the ER to perform patient decon?What are the steps?All these are covered in our class, with lots of hands-on.This is a four or eight-hour class.
Air MonitoringThis eight-hour course will train your technicians on your air monitoring equipment, giving them opportunity to become familiar with its uses, interpretation and limitations.We’ll take a look at using this equipment for investigating unknowns, making public and personal protection decisions and modeling release plumes.We’ll use the equipment on a number of unknowns and knowns and can conduct air monitoring in the field using propane and other gases.Lots of hands-on.
Leaks in Van TrailersThis eight-hour course will train your personnel to handle the unique challenges posed by van trailers carrying hazardous materials when they crash or roll over. Techniques for manually and mechanically moving and accessing cargo, transferring liquids from immovable containers and overpacking drums using forklifts will be presented and practiced. This class offers the opportunity for haz mat personnel to operate a forklift in personal protective equipment during the forklift overpack portion. Lots of case studies. Lots of hands-on Forklift needed for the class.
Leak Lab This class, with a lot of hands-on opportunities, will discuss the control of liquid and gas releases from a number of valves, fittings and piping.Our piping system is plumbed for pressurized liquid releases and allows techs to experiment with a number of control methods, temporary measures and fixes.Learn to contain, confine and cut-it-off.Four to eight hours.
Working with Small ContainersSeveral overpack methods, plugging and patching, liquids transfer and bondingand grounding will be discussed in this bread-and-butter class covering the typesof containers we respond to on a regular basis.Four hours.
Highway Cargo TankersThis 4-hour class will examine the most common types of highway cargo tankers, their features, case studies involving tanker accidents and fixes for leaking or damaged tanks.
Responding to Hazardous Occupancies In this 4-hour class we’ll take a look at how fixed hazardous materials facilities are designed and how to utilize these features to control chemical releases.A number of actual case studies will be examined to see how these features affect incident handling and emergency response.
Handling Fuel Tanker EmergenciesRoll-over and crash and burn case studies that illustrate proper techniques for righting, drill and pump-off, fire fighting leak control.We’ll discuss safe techniques, required equipment, operational problems and more. Eight hours
