Course Overview:

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires hospitals to provide First Responder Operations Level Decontamination Training to personnel who are expected to decontaminate victims or handle them before they are thoroughly decontaminated. This includes staff designated to provide treatment, triage, decontamination, and other related services as well as personnel who may reasonably be expected to come in contact with those individuals arriving at the hospital.

This comprehensive 8-hour Operations Level Decontamination program prepares hospital staff members to quickly recognize, receive, and manage exposed and contaminated patients - in accordance with OSHA requirements.
