Who Should Take This Course?

First responders at the operations level are individuals who respond to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances as part of the initial response with the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of the release. They are trained to respond in a defensive fashion without trying to stop the release. Their function is to contain the release from a safe distance, keep it from spreading, and prevent exposures.

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

We also offer the OSHA Hazmat FRA Online Training Course.

Many people are under the false assumption that FRO refresher training needs to be a minimum of eight hours in length annually. This is because the traditional OSHA 8 Hour Refresher Course is required each year for those trained to the 40 Hour HAZWOPER and 24 Hour HAZWOPER levels per section (e) of the OSHA HAZWOPER Regulation. However, the refresher training requirement for the FROs is found in section (q), not section (e), of the HAZWOPER Standard.

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.

Course Exams

This course has 5 module exams based upon the course's 5 modules. Students are required to complete each exam after completing all the sections within the corresponding module. The intention is to have students take the corresponding exam while the information is fresh. THERE IS NO FINAL EXAM.

Course Objectives

The objective of this Hazardous Materials First Responder Operations course is to address the Federal OSHA HAZWOPER training requirements for 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(ii) for general industry and 29 CFR 1926.65(q)(6)(ii) for construction. This course is also intended to meet any HAZWOPER training requirements for the EPA and State OSHA regulations.

Per 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(ii) and 29 CFR 1926.65(q)(6)(ii)

First responder operations level. First responders at the operations level are individuals who respond to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances as part of the initial response to the site for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of the release. They are trained to respond in a defensive fashion without trying to stop the release. Their function is to contain the release from a safe distance, keep it from spreading, and prevent exposures. First responders at the operational level shall have received at least eight hours of training or have had sufficient experience to objectively demonstrate competency in the following areas in addition to those listed for the awareness level and the employer shall so certify:

  • Knowledge of the basic hazard and risk assessment techniques;
  • Knowledge in selection and use of proper personal protective equipment provided to the first responder operational level;
  • An understanding of basic hazardous materials terms;
  • Ability to perform basic control, containment, and/or confinement operations within the capabilities of the resources and personal protective equipment available with their unit;
  • Ability to implement basic decontamination procedures; and
  • An understanding of the relevant standard operating and termination procedures.
Training Requirements

This course is designed to help workers meet the Hazmat First Responder Operations (FRO) Level II Responder Refresher (8 Hour)
(Includes Mailed ERG)
training requirement for 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(6)(ii) and 29 CFR 1926.65(q)(6)(ii).

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

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

This Hazmat First Responder Operations (FRO) Level II Responder training requires annual refresher training, or a demonstration of competency, to keep current and comply with OSHA regulations. Refresher training should be completed within one year of completing this initial training course and every year thereafter.

If you require refresher training, visit our pages for Hazardous Materials Technician Refresher (4 hour or 8 hour), FRO Refresher (4-6 hour or 8 hour), or FRA Refresher.

Additional Training

Additional training may be warranted depending on the role of the emergency responder and his or her level of involvement. This may include site-specific training, additional emergency response training, and training in the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) specific to the hazards.

Additional training in the use of any personal protective equipment or clothing used as part of emergency response is required and should be provided by your employer.

Workers must receive additional training, when required by Federal, State, or local regulations, 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 supplied by his or her employer. 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.
