New Guy Question
I have been reading alot of job announcements lately that state "Applicants must possess a Hazmat First Responder Certificate'. I know this is probably something that I should already know (I'm one class removed from my AS) but I don't seem to be able to get any answers; what standard are they looking for? 472? 473? DOT? Operations? Awareness? Tech? If you google the term, you get about 144,000 replies, so I thought I should ask people who would know.
Hey Ross, your looking for 29CFR1910 .120 . It is an OSHA reg that covers the hazmat requirements. The below link has info on each level. I am in no way affiliated with this site so please don't think I'm trying to sell ya something LOL. They just have good informative links.
You will need the initial course and a refresher every year there after to maintain the cert.
Hope this helps :)
Be safe, R2
Where are you locared? Here in GA, the state course meets requirements of NPQ.
Call your state standards and trainig office. They should be able to help.
First Responder includes Awareness and Operations.
Here it is either IFSAC or PROBOARD NFPA 472 awarness and ops.
