This Hazardous Materials Technician PowerPoint training presentation discusses how to respond to releases or potential releases for the purpose of stopping the release. This level requires at least 24 hours of training at the operations level, training equal to the competencies at the technician level, and certification by the employer. Hazardous materials technicians assume a more aggressive role than first responders at the operations level. They approach the point of release to plug, patch, or otherwise stop the release of a hazardous substance. They must be trained at the first responder operations level, and they are required to:
• Know how to implement the employer’s emergency response plan
• Know how to identify materials by using field survey instruments
• Be able to function in an assigned role in the incident command system
• Know how to select and use specialized personal protective equipment
• Understand hazard and risk assessment techniques
• Be able to perform advanced control and containment operations within the resources and equipment available
• Understand and implement decontamination procedures
Lessons include Pre-incident planning, Chemistry, Patient Support, Health and Safety, Recognition and Identification, U S Regulations, Terrorism, Decontamination, Personal Protective Equipment, Detection Devices, Control Techniques, and Incident Management.
