OSHA 5600 - Disaster Site Worker Trainer Course

This course prepares experienced Outreach Training Program trainers to present 7 or 15-hour Outreach Disaster Site Worker Courses, intended for second responders (those arriving hours or days after the event). Course topics include the National Response Framework, the Incident Command System, disaster work zone safety, respiratory protection, communication issues, applying elements of successful adult training programs, and knowledge, skills, and attitudes to awareness training about safety and health standards at natural and human-made disaster sites.
