This 18:30 minute training kit is designed to help train non-HAZWOPER employees on dealing with a hazardous material (or hazardous waste) spill, leak or release. What to do if you discover a hazmat release? How to determine if a release requires HAZWOPER-trained responders. If it is a hazmat emergency release (HAZWOPER event), what to do then? If it's non-HAZWOPER event (an 'incidental release'), the program reviews the discreet steps involved in clean-up. The kit includes a poster (see below).
