Hazmat First Responder Operations (FRO) Level III Responder
Who Should take this course?
HAZMAT responders at the Technician level are trained to respond to releases or potential releases in an offensive fashion. Unlike responders at the First Responder Operations (FRO) level who will seek to contain and isolate a release at a distance from the point of origin, workers at the Technician level will take steps to control or stop the release at its source.
Hazmat technicians are typically members of Hazmat Teams, which are also known as Spill Response Teams, or Emergency Response Teams, when they respond to chemical spills. This training is also referred to as Hazmat Tech, Level III Responder, Industry Tech, or any combination of these terms.
OSHA requires HAZMAT Technicians to have a minimum of 24 hours of training in accordance with section (q) of the HAZWOPER regulation.
