Hazmat First Responder Operations (FRO) Level II Responder
Level II, Hazardous Materials Emergency Responder Training for OSHA HAZWOPER.
Per 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(ii), First responders at the operations level are individuals who respond to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances as part of the initial response to the site for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of the release. They are trained to respond in a defensive fashion without actually trying to stop the release. Their function is to contain the release from a safe distance, keep it from spreading, and prevent exposures.
