BEST Complex has 3-Dimensional Leak Repair Training Simulators and Hazardous Materials training areas that offer the ideal environment to train Hazardous Materials personnel.
Simulations bridge the gap between paper-driven exercises, the classroom environment and field experience.
Our training staff can create any incident scenario where participants must respond and deploy Hazardous Materials equipment and personnel. During the exercise, participants and role-players can also be involved. For additional realism, you can use radios, plans and handbooks as would be used in actual events.
The goal of the simulated environment is to give practical experience in large and small scale incident responses using 3 dimensional hands-on training.
These exercise options offer a training experience that is invaluable in a real incident. The participants will learn from being heavily engaged in interactive time-sensitive training.
Training Areas include:
- Patching & Plugging
- Dike and dam procedures
- Pipe leak repairs
- Air Monitoring
- Level A, B, C or D Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donning and doffing
- Emergency Response Guidebook / NIOSH Guide Workstations
In HazMat simulations where many people are involved, the participants may be assigned specific roles, such as Incident Commander, On-Scene Commanders, Operations Chief, Team Leader, HazMat team members, and or monitoring personnel.
These props can provide you and your team with the knowledge, skills, tools and technology needed to refresh or further develop hands-on Job Performance Requirements (JPR’s) using scenarios that are as close to a real time as possible.
HazMat Refresher Training Area
These exercises help to train key response personnel in Hazardous Materials response. This is significant because success during a HazMat incident is dependent on the performance and effectiveness of the people who are in decision-making positions as well as Hazardous Materials Technicians.
Exercises can incorporate incident management, critical thinking skills and situational awareness to allow the teams to effectively and safely respond to a variety of simulated incidents.
Activities in which participants work through scenario based training can enhance their ability to respond to complex situations and encourage proper implementation of mitigation strategies.
Piping Leak Simulator
Simulators are useful and effective teaching tools when hands-on training is required to refresh participants.
Barrel Patching & Plugging
A number of patching and plugging kit options are available to hone the skills required to mitigate container leaks and breeches.
Broken Pipe Simulator
2 inch and 3 inch broken or open ended pipe props are available for practice in plugging and or off-loading to other containers
Emergency Response and NIOSH Guidebook Workstation
Exercises at this station are designed to refresh the participant with the various sections of the Emergency Response Guidebook and the NIOSH Handbook. Placarding, chemical ID numbers, initial actions, and MSDS information is reviewed.
Air Monitoring Workstation
Exercises at this station are designed to refresh the participant with the various features of a direct read air monitoring instrument. Operation of the instrument, taking an initial sample, alarm features and Hazards associated with oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and Lower Explosive Limit values are reviewed.
Exercises at this station are designed to refresh the participant with methods and techniques for gross decontamination. Construction of a DECON corridor / contamination reduction area are reviewed as hands-on activities.
