Disaster Site Worker Course
The goal of this 16-hour 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 man-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:
- inspection of an air-purifying respirator;
- donning and doffing an air-purifying respirator; and
- respirator user seal check.
The audience for this course is Disaster Site Workers who provide skilled support
services (e.g., utility, demolition, debris removal, or heavy equipment operation)
or site clean-up services in response to a disaster.
