This course helps workers understand the hazards and the cleanup procedures that can mitigate them. Hazardous materials in the workplace usually aren’t a problem when they’re handled carefully. But accidents can and do happen. When a spill occurs, serious damage can be prevented if employees have been trained on how to respond to them safely and effectively. Areas included in the program include the emergency action plan, the spill response team, the first steps in responding to a spill, characterizing a spill and cleaning it up, decontamination and waste disposal, and more.
