Private Sector/Corporate Safety Training Course Descriptions
~We Bring the Classroom to You~
Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) 8, 24, and 40 hour
- HAZWOPER encompasses the regulations of three federal regulatory agencies: the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Transportation, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It is mandated training for personnel who are engaged in the storage, treatment, or disposal of hazardous waste as outlined in 29 CFR 1910.120. It satisfies training contained in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, as well as section 126 of the Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act. The 8, 24, and 40 hour classes that we offer, address selection of proper PPE, confinement and spill cleanup, spill mitigation, and the role of the employee during an emergency response.
Special Event Contingency Planning
- No two events are alike. Pre- event planning and hazard analysis are paramount in responding to the needs of special events. Our instructors will partner with you and assist you in learning the needs of various special events and developing a team to manage your events. Exposure to the federal National Incident Management System will give students insight into the operation of public safety agencies and assist them in “plugging in” in the event of a catastrophe.
Threat Analysis and Vulnerability Assessment
- This course prepares students to conduct a comprehensive, all-hazards vulnerability assessment. The students will learn to gather and analyze intelligence based on a specific incident, and apply it as a preventative measure for facility specific events. While the course uses lecture as a primary teaching tool, the emphasis is on small group discussions and activities, and performance based scenarios.
Weapons of Mass Destruction, 8, 16, and 24 hour
- These courses provide students with an in-depth understanding of terrorist threats; CBRNE hazards, delivery devices, and an in-depth study current terrorist organizations and past terrorist events.
An Introduction to the National Incident Management System for the Private Sector
- A comprehensive study of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5, “Management of Domestic Incidents”. Study includes the concepts of flexibility and standardization regardless of incident size, location, or complexity, as well as the 5 general components of NIMS.
National Incident Management System 100, 200, 300, and 400
- Learn the local, state, and federal government’s standardized approach to incident management. In-depth exposure to the cooperation and interoperability needed among public and private agencies, in order to prevent loss of life and property during catastrophic incidents. Each level builds upon the previous one, culminating in an all day tabletop exercise that puts student’s new-found incident management skills to the test.
Reinforcing the Soft Target (Building Hard Targets)
- This course will introduce participants to terrorist threat options, including the characteristics and effects of CBRNE agents, various ways they may be employed by the terrorist, and options for protective measures. Discussions will include the terrorist planning cycle, suspicious behavior indicators, and basic strategies that will assist participants in assessing vulnerabilities in their own facilities and bringing them into Hard Target compliance. Exposure will also be given the federal National Incident Management System used by public safety agencies, in the event of a terrorist event.
Terrorism Awareness in the Workplace
- This course provides private sector employees instruction in recognition, isolation, and the notification process involved in a weapons of destruction incident. Participants will also be exposed to the federal National Incident Management System used by public safety agencies in the event of a terrorist event.
Planning for School Bombing Incident
- This course addresses the issues facing today’s educators as they develop safe and effective plans for protecting today’s students. Officials learn to identify/recognize the common components of Improvised Explosive Devices, describe the major factors involved in a school bombing incident, and identify and implement the critical components of a bombing response plan.
All Hazards Tabletop Exercise and Evaluation
- The overall purpose of any exercise is to identify strengths and weaknesses in any facility response plan. We at Aegis will develop an all hazards exercise that will identify any weaknesses in your response plan and assist you in developing options that will bring it to the level that will allow you to reach your operational objectives during any event. Emphasis is placed on developing and maintaining coordinated action plans, alerting and activating personnel for emergency response, and directing and coordinating emergency activities using the Federal National Incident Management System and Incident Command System.
United States Department of Labor division of OSHA does not recommend, approve, certify, or endorse individual trainers or training programs. It is OSHA's policy that the use of computer based training by itself is not sufficient to meet the intent of the HAZWOPER standards various training requirements…it is essential that the trainees have hands-on experience and excercises to provide an opportunity to become familiar with equipment and safe practices in a non-hazardous setting. The purpose of hands-on training is two-fold: first to ensure that the workers have an opportunity to learn by practical experience and second to assess whether workers have mastered the necessary skills. Also, it is critical that trainees have the opportunity to ask questions of a qualified instructor where material is unfamiliar to them. www.osha.gov/dte/training_faqs
