Fremont Maritime is pleased to now offer monthly, open-enrollment HAZWOPER training at our Seattle facility.
(Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response)
This class covers the OSHA/Washington State training requirements in 29 CFR 1910.120(q) and WAC 296-824 for Hazardous Material Technician level responders.
The course is designed for those individuals who respond to and assume an offensive role regarding uncontrolled hazardous substance releases or potential releases.
This course helps employees understand the basics principles of hazardous material response in the workplace. Topics addressed include:
- Hazard Communication
- First Aid
- Respiratory Protection
- Spill Response
- Personal Protective Equipment
- Incident Command System
- Emergency Response Plans, and more
Who needs HAZWOPER? Employees who are exposed or may be exposed to hazardous substances and who may be called upon to respond to and/or clean up a release. This includes mariners who are expected to respond to oil spills from their own vessels. Once an individual has completed the initial 24-hour training, he or she must take an 8-hour refresher class every 12 months.
