Class description

This course is intended to update the authorized Disaster Site Worker trainer with new technical and regulatory information related to disaster response and the role of OSHA in coordinating occupational safety and health in the National Response Framework. Participants will have the opportunity to share "lessons learned" from teaching the OSHA #7600 Disaster Site Worker Course.

Disaster Site Worker Outreach Trainers are required to attend this course once every four years to maintain their authorized trainer status. The OSHA #5600 course also may be used to maintain a trainer's authorized status.
