Course Description

The goal of OSHA’s 7.5- hour Disaster Site Worker Course is a shortened version to the 15-hour Disaster Site Worker Course that provides disaster site workers awareness of the safety and health hazards they may encounter; the importance of respiratory and other personal protective equipment (PPE); and decontamination procedures that may be used to mitigate the hazards. Participants will support the use of an Incident Command System (ICS) through the safe performance of their job responsibilities. They’ll be able to show awareness of effects of traumatic incident stress that can result from working conditions and measures to reduce this stress. Of primary importance is the participant’s ability to perform the following specific tasks correctly:
a) inspection of an air-purifying respirator; b) donning and doffing an air-purifying respirator; and c) respirator user seal check.

Intended audience: Disaster site workers who provide support services or site clean-up services in response to a disaster. These audiences are not necessarily members of the construction trades, but may be from volunteer community and State organizations, utility workers and public works employees who may not have a construction background.
