These courses are designed to enable you to contribute to the reduction of the harm created by hazardous materials emergencies. These courses develop skills with which to identify the hazardous materials problem in their communities; recognize hazardous material presence; and identify the specific hazardous material(s) and associated hazard characteristics.
Federal regulations (OSHA) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards require that anyone who might come into contact with hazardous materials need to learn about HAZMAT. Our programs include general information about hazardous materials, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS); incident command and control procedures; personal protection equipment (PPE) and everything else you may need to know to be prepared in the event that you become involved in a HAZMAT incident.
