Hazardous Materials Operations Refresher 2002

SPO 1-1 The individual will demonstrate the basic and skills expected of someone trained to the First Responder Operations Level under 29 CFR 1910.120(q), from memory, without assistance, to a written test accuracy of 70%.

EO 1-1 Identify the basic hazard and risk assessment techniques that someone at the First Responder Operations Level should know.

EO 1-2 Demonstrate how to select and use personal protective equipment provided to the first responder at the operations level.

EO 1-3 Demonstrate the basic hazardous materials terms that a first responder at the operations level should know.

EO 1-4 Demonstrate how to perform basic control, containment, and/or confinement operations within the resources available to a first responder at the operations level.

EO 1-5 Demonstrate how to implement basic decontamination procedures.

EO 1-6 Demonstrate knowledge of relevant standard operating and termination procedures for someone at the first responder operations level.

This drill is designed to serve as a refresher program for individuals who have been trained to the first responder operations level as required by the OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910.120(q). The instruction should include lecture, group interaction, and practical activities.
