  • Hazardous Materials Training Program
    Updated On: Sep 05, 2018

    RAIL WORKERS
    — Hazardous Materials Training Program —

    Peer trainers dedicated to providing quality education & awareness of hazardous materials, empowering rail workers & communities.

    Rail Hazmat Chemical/Emergency
    Response Training Programs

    The Rail Workers Hazardous Materials Training Program is funded by a federal grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) to provide hazmat training to rail workers. This five-day hazmat training course will provide rail workers the essential knowledge, skills, and response actions in the case of an unintentional release. These tools will allow rail workers to protect themselves, their co-workers and their communities.


    This training addresses OSHA and DOT required training in addition to procedures, different levels of response and worker protection in a hazardous materials emergency or release, weapons of mass destruction awareness and the incident command system. The training also provides completion of the OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Outreach requirements. 

    The programs are delivered using interactive classroom instruction, small group activities, hands-on drills and a simulated hazmat response in full safety gear.

    The funding provides the following student expenses: travel, lodging and meals. In addition, an incentive of $175.00 per day is available to all training participants of these programs, except those who are able to secure regular pay through their employer, or are paid union officers. Training will be conducted at the Houston Fire Academy’s Val Jahnke Training Facility, 8030 Braniff Street, Houston, TX 77061.

    To meet this training need, the Rail Program will
    conduct the following classes:


    Sunday 5:30 p.m. orientation, Friday departure
