Standard Awareness Training Identification of Hazardous Materials and ERG

The Standard Awareness Training’s course goal is to provide knowledge and skills to identify Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive material hazards, use of emergency response guide, and how to prevent and deter further injury or property loss at an awareness level. Participants will learn one module of what is otherwise an 8-hour course. Terminal Learning Objective of this class: At the conclusion of this module, given the Emergency Response Guidebook and specific information, participants will be able to identify hazardous materials, hazard classes, and response information using the ERG.Hazmat Incidents: Hazmat incidents are expected to occur daily. Almost every jurisdiction has at least one facility that produces, stores, or uses some form of Hazardous materials. Hazardous materials are also shipped across the United States on various modes of transportation every day. The ERG is used to identify hazardous materials and protective measures. Specifics of this session: What will be covered in the session will enable participants to define terms associated with a hazardous materials (often referred to as HAZMAT) incident, hazardous materials storage and packaging locations, hazard classes, and examples of hazardous materials. In addition, participants identify methods for HAZMAT identification. Participants also use the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG; U.S. Department of Transportation {DOT}, 2012) to identify potential hazards and the response actions associated with each hazard. Participants discuss the initial protective actions that may be taken according to the ERG. Participants identify shipping papers, Safety Data Sheets (SDS), and facility documents’ recognition method for hazardous materials
