OSHA 7600 – Disaster Site Worker


The goal of this course is to increase the participant’s awareness of the safety and health hazards, including CBRNE agents, that may be encountered at a natural or human-made disaster site. The importance of respiratory and other personal protective equipment and proper decontamination procedures that may be used to mitigate the hazards will be emphasized. Participants will support the use of an Incident Command System through the safe performance of their job responsibilities. They will be able to show awareness of effects of traumatic incident stress that can result from working conditions and measures to reduce this stress. In addition, participants will be able to perform the following specific tasks correctly: 1) inspection of an air-purifying respirator; 2) donning and doffing an air-purifying respirator; and 3) respirator user seal check.
