OSHA Hazmat FRA Level I Responder

OSHA Hazmat FRA Level I Responder Overview

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(i), First responders at the awareness level are individuals who are likely to witness or discover a hazardous substance release and who have been trained to initiate an emergency response sequence by notifying the proper authorities of the release. They would take no further action beyond notifying the authorities of the release.

Our OSHA Hazmat First Responder Awareness (FRA) and OSHA Hazmat First Responder Awareness (FRA) Refresher courses are only $59.95.

Each student is shipped the most current version of the Department of Transportation's (DOT), Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG), which is required to be used during this course. A downloadable version is also available to each student.

The OSHA Hazmat First Responder Awareness (FRA) training can be taken for EMS Continuing Education (CE) credits as an option for $64.95.

This option must be selected during the sign-up process.

We also offer the OSHA Hazmat FRO Online Training Course.

It is not necessary for students to take both the First Responder Awareness (FRA) AND the First Responder Operations (FRO) training. Taking the FRO course is sufficient to meet the training requirement for both responder levels: FRO training builds on FRA training.

Additional Training

This course is designed to help workers meet the OSHA Hazmat First Responder Awareness (FRA) training requirement as outlined in the OSHA HAZWOPER regulation.

It should be combined with company-specific training on the employer's Emergency Response Plan, including policies and procedures for employees that respond to hazardous materials emergencies.

Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job.

Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training that is supplied by their own company. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company-specific training should be well documented.

It is not necessary for students to take both the First Responder Awareness (FRA) AND the First Responder Operations (FRO) training. Taking the FRO course is sufficient to meet the training requirement for both responder levels: FRO training builds on FRA training.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.

Annual Refresher Training

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(8)(i)

Those employees who are trained in accordance with paragraph (q)(6) of this section (the OSHA HAZWOPER Regulation) shall receive annual refresher training of sufficient content and duration to maintain their competencies, or shall demonstrate competency in those areas at least yearly.
