About This Training

Hazardous Materials Technicians are trained to respond to hazardous materials emergencies in an offensive fashion. Their primary role is to stop or control a spill or release by approaching the point of the release using specialized personal protective equipment (PPE).

Hazmat Technicians are typically members of Hazmat Teams, often referred to as Spill Response Teams, or Emergency Response Teams, when they respond to chemical spills.

OSHA requires Hazardous Materials Technicians to be trained in accordance with section (q) of the HAZWOPER regulation. This training is also referred to as Hazmat Tech, Level III Responder, Industry Tech, or any combination of these terms.

This training requires annual refresher training, per OSHA, of sufficient content and duration to maintain responder competencies.
