(6) Trainers. Trainers who teach any of the above training
subjects should have satisfactorily completed a training
course for teaching the subjects they are expected to
teach, such as the courses offered by the U.S. National
Fire Academy, or they should have the training and/or
academic credentials and instructional experience
necessary to demonstrate competent instructional skills
and a good command of the subject matter of the
courses they are to teach.
(7) Skilled support personnel. Personnel who are skilled in
the operation of certain equipment, such as mechanized
earth moving or digging equipment or crane and
hoisting equipment, and who are needed temporarily to
perform immediate emergency support work that may
involve exposure to hazards at the emergency response
scene, should be given an initial briefing at the site prior
to their participation in any emergency response.
(8) Specialist personnel. Personnel who, in the course of
their regular job duties, work with and are trained in the
hazards of specific hazardous substances, and who will
be called upon to provide technical advice or assistance
at a hazardous substance release incident, should
receive training or demonstrate competency in the area
of their specialization annually.
e. The training plan should provide for annual retraining for
onsite and offsite incidents, including transportation
incidents. Annual retraining should include training on
weaknesses detected during drills and exercises, changes to
plans and procedures, and lessons learned from emergencies
at DOE and other industrial facilities.
(1) The plan should include a schedule for annual retraining
of emergency response personnel.
(2) The plan should describe the mechanism for ensuring
that training offered is up-to-date with industry
practices and incorporates plan changes and lessons
learned from drills and exercises.
