For these dynamic events, your organization needs a fully prepared HazMat unit; meaning certified Hazardous Materials Technician Level trained responders.

Health and Safety Sciences’ HazMAT24™ training teams are high-speed real world responders that have hundreds of responses under their belts. Our trainers come from fire service, law enforcement, emergency management and military backgrounds.

Health and Safety Sciences’ interactive training techniques are designed to immerse your team members in the world of hazmat response. By using comprehensive, hands-on instructional methods, HSS trains your emergency response team members using likely spill scenarios at your facilities. To supplement class lectures, HSS’s HazMAT24™ instructors introduce problem-solving case studies to further engage trainees. Each team member dons personal protective equipment and functions under the Incident Management System to perform mission critical skills.
