Neenah, WI -  The minutes immediately following an uncontrolled hazardous substance release are critical in protecting workers, property, and the environment. That’s why OSHA requires both initial and annual refresher training for any worker expected to assist in the handling of an emergency release.

To help ensure emergency responders receive initial training according to the OSHA HAZWOPER Standard, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. — the most trusted name in safety and compliance — has developed HAZWOPER: Emergency Response Initial Training.

Designed to reflect the latest regulatory requirements and industry best practices, three separate curricula have been developed, which cover OSHA-required training elements for the awareness, operations, and hazardous materials technician levels. This allows employers to easily train workers in emergency response under 29 CFR 1910.120 or 1926.65.

“These online-based training curricula go over the core emergency response training elements,” said Tricia Hodkiewicz, workplace safety and environmental editor for J. J. Keller. “That means they serve as valuable training tools that can be used as part of an effective safety and health training program.”
