We Offer Training to Tribes
The Workplace Safety Training Program and the Native American Fish & Wildlife Society are partners in providing training to Native American tribes throughout the U.S.. The Awareness and Operations courses comply with OSHA's 29CFR1910.120(q)(6) with added elements from NFPA 472. Also, the courses comply with most sections of the Hazaard Communication Standard 29CFR1920.1200 and the recognition and identification sections of DOT's Hazardous Materials Employee training requirements.
Sometimes tribal members, employees, emergency response personnel or others who might be the first on scene of an emergency chemical release, are welcome to attend. This includes: firefighters, law enforcement officers, security personnel, emergency coordinators, conservation officers, and environmental workers.
Training conducted include the following:
- HazMat Awareness (8 hrs.)
- HazMat Operations Level Responder (24 hrs.)
- Clandestine Meth Lab Awareness (8 hrs.)
- Incident Command System (hrs. vary)
- WMD & All Hazards Awareness (8 hrs.)
- MCI Triage Awareness (8 hrs.)
- Radiological/Nuclear Awareness (8 hrs.)
Disasters can happen at any time and in a variety of ways. It could be a natural disaster caused by weather or something more sinister (like a terrorist attack) and first responders must be prepared to deal with these types of events.
How to Schedule a Training Event
The Workplace Safety Training Program, a division of the Alabama Fire College (WST/AFC), in partnership with the NAFWS, requests that if you would like to schedule a session at your tribe or community, there should be at least 15 attendees to register for a class.
