Emergency Responder Training

Many companies house hazardous substances, such as anhydrous ammonia, at their facilities to help in processing, production, and storage of their products. Therefore, it is necessary to have training that teaches prompt and safe responses to hazardous situations, so lives are not endangered and the financial loss for the company is minimized.

Industrial Consultants, LLC offers this class on-site at the facility providing the client site-specific training using their own equipment.  On-site training also allows for response planning to be developed and implemented at the facility.

Scenarios are planned that will simulate conditions indicating that a spill or leak has occurred. The personnel will assess the situation and determine what emergency equipment they will need to defensively stop the leak. Critiques will then be held to look for weaknesses or changes that should be made in future scenarios. All personnel will be given the opportunity to wear the air purifying respirators in practice.

At the end of the class the attendees will be required to take an examination and upon satisfactory passing, will be awarded a certificate and a first responder operations level identification wallet card to be used when responding to actual spills.
