HAZWOPER: PPE for Emergency Response

Course Description:

“Personal protective equipment, or PPE, provides a barrier between you and the hazards of your job. The right PPE, properly used and maintained, can protect you from the hazards involved in the emergency response tasks you perform—and it can help ensure that you are able to go home safe and healthy at the end of your shift. But for PPE to protect you properly in emergency situations involving hazardous substances or other safety and health hazards, you have to know how to select the right equipment for the job, understand its capabilities and limitations, use it properly, and remove it safely. We’ll discuss all these important issues and more in this training session.
The main objective of this session is to provide you with the information you need to know about emergency response PPE so that you can use this important equipment properly to protect your health and safety when responding to releases or substantial threats of releases of hazardous substances.”
