Operations Level Decontamination Training

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires hospitals to provide First Responder Operations Level Decontamination Training to personnel who are expected to decontaminate victims or handle them before they are thoroughly decontaminated. This includes staff designated to provide treatment, triage, decontamination, and other related services as well as personnel who may reasonably be expected to come in contact with those individuals arriving at the hospital.

This comprehensive Operations Level Decontamination Training program prepares hospital staff to quickly and efficiently recognize, receive, and manage exposed and contaminated patients.

In an effort to maintain your decontamination capability levels throughout the year, this training course also includes one year of the What's NextTM Decontamination Sustainment Program.


The Operations Level Decontamination Training Program combines lecture, case studies, facilitated discussion, and hands-on skill training to educate and prepare attendees to respond appropriately to the many nuances associated with an emergency decontamination operation.

Discussion includes: incident command, information gathering, team work, staff support, equipment utilization and program sustainment. DQE will assist the hospital in qualifying for continuing education credits and will provide all necessary documentation to certify attendees in accordance with OSHA.

Duration: 1 or 2 days (based on class size), 8 hours/day

Class Size: 6 – 25
