Does "Hazardous Materials" Apply to You?

Do you need to comply with hazardous waste operations and emergency response because you respond to emergencies involving hazardous materials? If yes, then you need to comply with hazardous materials. Note: This standard applies to general industry in North Carolina.

This North Carolina state specific standard adds a new level of training to paragraph (q)(6) for individuals who respond to hydrocarbon fuel leaks; "first responder operations plus level".

"First Responder Operations Plus Level. First responders at operations plus level are individuals who respond to hydrocarbon fuel tank leaks where the leaking tanks contain a hydrocarbon fuel which is used to propel the vehicle on which the tank is located. Only those vehicles designed for highway use or those used for industrial, agricultural or construction purposes are covered."
