Emergency Response

Having the right skills and training to handle spills and releases of hazardous materials and hazardous waste is the main aim of the HAZWOPER emergency response training requirements. To meet this need, Zephyr offers many courses to fill the requirements of Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.120.

We offer training in all 5 HAZWOPER emergency response levels (per 29 CFR 1910.120(q): First Responder Awareness (by request), First Responder Operations, Hazardous Materials Technician, Hazardous Materials Specialist (by request), and On-Scene Incident Commander.

We also provide courses for General Site Workers (such as equipment operators, general laborers and supervisory personnel) engaging in hazardous substance removal or other activities which expose or potentially could expose them to hazardous substances and health hazards. We are also able to offer (by request) training for Occasional Site Workers. Occasional site workers per the regulations are “those whom are on-site for a specific limited task (such as, but not limited to, ground water monitoring, land surveying, or geo-physical surveying) that are unlikely to be exposed over permissible exposure limits” (29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(ii)); as well as workers regularly on site working in “areas which have been monitored and fully characterized indicating that exposures are under permissible exposure limits and published exposure limits where respirators are not necessary, and the characterization indicates that there are no health hazards or the possibility of an emergency developing” (29 CFR 1910.120(e)(3)(iii)).
