CBRNE & In-Hospital HazMat Spill Training Get Started
CBRNE & In-Hospital HazMat Spill Training
Hazardous substances are readily available in various forms and quantities in our homes, businesses, and hospitals. These substances are often economically important, irreplaceable in many circumstances, and also potentially dangerous. An incident involving a hazardous substance challenges the hospital’s state of readiness and places the facility and staff at risk of exposure and secondary contamination. Most hazardous materials incidents are a result of human error. Some releases are purely intentional in nature, whose sole purpose is to create confusion, mass injuries, and societal disruption. Releases of hazardous substances most often injure employees, followed by the general public, and less frequently, first responders and school children.
- CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive Agents) Training focuses on the various mass casualty hazards/ threats that may impact healthcare delivery.
- In-Hospital HazMat Spill Training educates individuals about chemical spills and how to distinguish between an incidental spill and one that requires emergency response.
