Hazwoper first responder awareness

HAZWOPER: First Responder Awareness

Course NumberNSTC-08

Revised 8-2012


Introduction

Introduction


Hazwoper first responder awareness

Goal

To ensure participants can demonstrate the proper response to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances.


Objectives

Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Recognize hazardous substances and the associated risks.

  • Explain the HAZWOPER First Responder Awareness responsibilities and limitations.

  • Describe special hazards with DOT-regulated pipelines and the appropriate response to unusual activities in a pipeline right-of-way.


What does hazwoper mean

What Does HAZWOPER Mean?

  • HAZardous Waste OPerations and Emergency Response

  • Emergency response is stopping and containing a leak or spill.

  • The actual clean-up of a spill is a hazardous waste operation.

OSHA, 29 CFR 1910.1200

DOT Emergency Response Guidebook


Dot emergency response guidebook1

DOT Emergency Response Guidebook

The ERG is a guide to aid first responders in quickly identifying the specific or generic hazards of the materials involved in an incident and protecting themselves and the general public during the initial response phase.

Using the erg

Using the ERG

Look up the 4-digit ID number 1219. What is this product and its guide number? What are its potential hazards?

Look up diesel fuel in the ERG and find its 3-digit guide number and 4-digit identification number. What are its potential hazards?

Look up ID number 1940. What is this product’s guide number and potential hazards?


Clues exercise

Clues Exercise

  • Scenario: You have driven to Pad 15 where you notice colorless liquid leaking from a mobile tanker with this placard. The liquid has pooled up and is beginning to leak off the pad onto the tundra. There is a worker lying on the ground near the spill. No other workers are in the area.

  • Question: What clues in this scenario will help you identify the hazard?


Clues for recognizing hazardous materials

Clues for Recognizing Hazardous Materials

  • Dead animals or discolored plants

  • Person down

  • Unknown spill in area where hazardous materials are used or stored

  • Numbers, symbols & color on container labels and placards

  • Information from workers involved in or near the release

  • Other clues might include a hissing or roaring sound or an unusual odor


Erg exercise

ERG Exercise

Read the situation described in the ERG Exercise Handout and answer the questions by circling the correct answer.

When everyone has completed the exercise, discuss the correct answers.

    • Unusual odor such as pungent hydrocarbon


If you suspect or discover a leak

If You Suspect or Discover a Leak

  • Don’t touch, breathe, or make contact with leaking liquids.

  • Don’t do anything that may create a spark such as use a cell phone.

  • Turn off motors or ignition sources.

  • Immediately leave area in an upwind direction.

  • Warn others!

  • From a safe location, call to report the leak.


How to report a leak

How to Report a Leak

Preventive measures

Preventive Measures

  • Inspection and maintenance programs

  • Automated safety systems for pipeline shutdown

  • Visual surveillance from ground and air

  • Internal and external pipeline audit assessments

  • Stream bank erosion inspections


Products transported

Products Transported

Crude oil

Some crude oil may contain toxic hydrogen-sulfide (H2S).

Crude oil color can vary from yellow to black.

There is a fire danger.

Mineral oils and some diesel fuels


Products transported1

Products Transported

Highly Volatile Liquids (HVL)

HVL are comprised of products such as ethane, butane, propane, and natural gas liquids (NGL).

The vapors are heavier than air.

HVL burn very readily and may explode.

Pipeline awareness program notifications

Pipeline Awareness Program Notifications

US DOT-regulated pipelines are located within 50–150 ft. state-regulated rights-of-way (ROW).*

Vehicle accidents require notification. Notification is required regardless of the individuals or operating area involved.

Report any accidents or leaks.

If a vehicle comes into contact with apipeline, turn off the ignition. Do not move the vehicle or introduce any sources of ignition.

The pipeline operators will take appropriate actions to protect the public and environment.

* Work activities may require advance notification to facilitate coordination with agency officials.
