Responding To Hazardous Materials Incidents

The first of many levels of Hazardous Materials Training. This course provides the basic information to employees and responders to accurately identify and in turn notify the proper authorities regarding the release of a Hazardous Substance.

First Responder Operational

The Operational Level is the starting point for all emergency responders. This course will open a first responders eyes to the “Chemical World”in which we live. Using the Emergency Response Guidebook, successful attendees will will be able to recognize and identify thousands of the worlds most hazardous substances.

First Responder Decontamination

The Decontamination level is the second step for all emergency responders. This course will allow non-technician responders to setup a decontamination corridor and work within the contamination reduction zone. This certified course allows for technicians to focus on other areas of response while first responders cover the basics by being prepared to decontaminate two entry team members or several mass casualty patients. Chemical Safety Training recommends that First Responder Operations and Decontamination be taken in series with each other to provide a more well rounded responder.

Chemistry For Emergency Responders

We offer the most current version of the National Fire Academy's chemistry course. Director Brian Heinz is the Pilot Program Instructor. Designed to challenge the students to think beyond physical hazards, this course offers a look into the world of chemistry from the basics of ionic and covalent bonds to the molecular structure of aromatic hydrocarbons. Students should be prepared for a challenging yet extremely rewarding experience.

Emergency Medical Response to Hazardous Materials Incidents

As our nation prepares for more acts of terrorism, it is extremely important that our Hospital staff and Emergency Medical Response personnel are rained to maximize their invaluable expertise in a Hazardous Materials Disaster. The procedures and techniques that must be utilized to reduce the possibility of secondary contamination are critical to maintaining the sterility and effectiveness of our treatment facilities.

Industrial Technician

The Industrial Technician program offers employers the opportunity to provide worthwhile Hazardous Material training to employees. This 24 or 40 hour course is adapted to cover the specific needs of your facility. OSHA requires adequate threat communication, these courses go beyond an awareness level to thoroughly educate and inform. A must for anyone who comes into regular contact with Hazardous Substances as a function of their job.

Industrial Fire Brigade Training

Federal OSHA regulations define the need to provide training for employees who will be assigned members of a fire brigade.

29 CFR 1910.156(c)(1)

The employer shall provide training and education for all fire brigade members commensurate with those duties and functions that fire brigade members are expected to perform. Such training and education shall be provided to fire brigade members before they perform fire brigade emergency activities.

Our fire brigade program is a comprehensive look at the critical elements involved with firefighting in an industrial setting. Course content includes fundamentals of fire chemistry, fire extinguisher use, and deployment of attack lines and monitors. We specialize in customized programs that address the specific hazards encountered.

Department of Transportation Regulations

As international exports increase and security and safety is jeopardized, inspection and transportation regulating agencies and personnel must have unparalleled familiarity with the laws that govern commodity exchange. Our knowledgeable instructors have a working relationship with such documents and can help you and your employees gain exceptional skills in referencing.

Clandestine Laboratories

A very popular discipline of courses that is offered in several levels. Choose from 8, 24, and 40 hour courses ranging from specific substances to a spectrum of illicit manufacturing laboratories. Learn the hazards and dangers associated with the manufacturing process as well as safe handling and segregation techniques for proper disposal/inventory.

Emergency Response to Terrorism

The threat of terrorism affects all communities both nationally and internationally. History has shown that no community is immune. Terrorism transcends all geographic and demographic boundaries. All jurisdictions, suburban, urban and rural are at risk.

This program will address the special needs of responders to incidents which have or may have been caused by terrorist action. The Emergency Response to Terrorism program will also explore other issues regarding homeland security.

Weapons of Mass Destruction:

Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Contingencies

As our Nation faces times of uncertainty, it is vital that our emergency responders possess the skills and knowledge that will contribute to safe and competent decisions. The threat of Nuclear/Biological/Chemical (NBC) terrorism is an ominous and real concern. Chemical Safety Training provides courses that inform participants of the subtle and major concerns associated with suspected NBC weapons, exposures, and catastrophes. From the chemical structure and makeup of the most common and widely used agents to the signs and symptoms of exposure, CST will provide information an options to guide responders in successful disaster mitigation.

Hazardous Materials Technician

Module 1A: Basic Chemistry
Module 1A is an intense introduction to the nature and behavior of chemicals. Instruction begins with discussion on atomic structure and the periodic table of the elements and follows through with 22 families of inorganic and organic chemical compounds. Emphasis is placed not only on name recognition, but the physical and chemical hazards associated with the materials in the event of a spill or emergency. Fire chemistry and the toxic products of combustion are also discussed as it pertains to various hydrocarbons and derivative compounds.

Return to course listing


Hazardous Materials Technician

Module 1B: Applied Chemistry
Module 1B is the practical application of the chemistry learned in module 1A. Air monitoring and detection devices are discussed and participants will have the opportunity to use not only the instrumentation but hands-on laboratory field identification of unknown solid and liquid samples. Participants will work in small groups referencing chemical information and characteristics from written texts and resources. Students will also work with the latest computer software programs for chemical research, compatibility and reactivity data as well as hazardous vapor plume modeling and graphing. Live demonstrations are used to show reaction consequences.

Hazardous Materials Technician

Module 1C: Incident Considerations
Module 1C consists of a variety of topics. The core of the course focuses on site safety and protective-action options. Participants will develop a site safety plan for a variety of scenarios ranging from both transportation and fixed facility incidents. Participants are introduced to the incident command system (ICS) for hazardous materials operations, emergency response planning, and scene management. Clandestine laboratories are also included as part of the curriculum. Toxicology is also explored particularly measuring lethal and chronic contaminant levels. Students will engage in a field Level A obstacle course while having to perform various skills and typical operations while wearing encapsulated protective garments. Preservation of evidence will be discussed in relation to crime scene considerations.

Hazardous Materials Technician

Module 1D: Tactical Field Operations
Module 1D focuses on the tactics and strategy of entry operations, emergency rescue and medical considerations while wearing chemical protective clothing. Hands-on activities include drum and tank patching, pipeline and industrial pipe system repair, use of the chlorine emergency kits, decontamination corridor set-up and a full scale scenario activity. The course is a capstone to the technician program and participants will have to incorporate the information learned in previous modules to respond to a variety of simulated emergencies. Laws and regulations that pertain to response activities, emergency response planning and both bulk and non-bulk packaging requirements for highway, rail, pipeline, aircraft and water transportation are covered extensively. Chemical and biological terrorism are also included within this program.
