Program Purpose. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Disaster Site Worker Outreach Training Program is intended to provide necessary training to workers who provide skilled support (e.g. utility, demolition, debris removal, or heavy equipment operation) or clean-up services in response to natural and man-made disasters. All workers at disaster sites need to be aware of the differences between disaster sites and regular construction or demolition worksites and be able to inspect, don, and doff air-purifying respirators. This training is also intended to raise awareness that pre-incident training is essential to ensure worker safety and health in response to disasters. Safety and health hazards that may be encountered, personal protective equipment, respiratory protection, proper decontamination procedures to mitigate hazards will be covered. Participants will support the Incident Command System (ICS), and show awareness of the effects of traumatic incident stress that can result from working conditions and measures to reduce this stress.

Who should attend? The intended audiences for this course are disaster site workers who provide skilled support services or site clean-up services in response to a disaster for example, construction trades, heavy equipment operators, demolitions personnel, utilities, public works and others who may engage during or after a natural or manmade disaster.
