16-hr Incident Command
Clean Management instructors will train front-line employees on the proper emergency response protocol to a hazardous materials incident. The 16-hr Incident Command Course covers the appropriate response procedures, safety measures, and protocol for professionals to remain safe and in compliance with regulations.
What is 16-Hr Incident Command?
16-Hr Incident Command is a Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) course that covers the protocol outlined by OSHA and FEMA’s National Incident Management System (NIMS). While OSHA and the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) address workplace behavior, NIMS is intended for the community as a whole (but contains some of the same information as OSHA and the CFR).
This HAZWOPER course teaches participants how to efficiently and effectively respond to emergencies. Infrastructure that utilizes this management system streamlines their resources, personnel, and communication. At the time of an incident, responsible officers are able to identify and mitigate the associated problems and damages.
‘Hazmat’ is short for hazardous materials, and typically used in conversation with HAZWOPER training and regulations. Hazmat Technicians are certified professionals that deal with such environments and materials in the public and/or private sector.
Who should enroll in the 16-Hr Incident Command Training?
Hazmat technicians, typically after an OSHA 24 HAZWOPER course, are viable candidates for this course, as are any other employees who are potentially exposed to hazardous materials in their regular line of duty or in cleanup processes. Training covers an introduction to Incident Command Systems and equips professionals with the skills to safely design, implement, and modify systems.
This training is typically required by professionals that will be in charge of teams of employees dealing with hazardous materials and waste. In particular, Incident Command training is valuable for leading teams that are engaged in cleanup operations.
